What to expect from HER-2 directed therapies in advanced gastric cancer?

Faysal DANE [1]



Gastric cancer is the second most common cause of cancer
related death worldwide. Over 20% of the advanced gastric
cancer are considered to be HER-2 positive. Studies
investigating the prognosis of HER-2 positive advanced
gastric cancer revealed conflicting results. Trastuzumab, a
monoclonal antibody against HER-2, has shown a significant
clinical activity in HER-2 positive gastric cancer patients. In
this review, I will briefly summarize the clinical studies of
anti-HER-2 therapies performed in HER-2 positive gastric
carcinoma.
