PERJETA is a first-line treatment for HER2-positive metastatic breast cancer.
PERJETA® (pertuzumab) is approved for use in combination with Herceptin® (trastuzumab) and docetaxel (chemotherapy) in people who have HER2-positive breast cancer that has spread to different parts of the body (metastatic) and who have not received anti-HER2 therapy or chemotherapy for metastatic breast cancer.
PERJETA may cause heart problems, including those without symptoms (such as reduced heart function) and those with symptoms (such as congestive heart failure).
Receiving PERJETA during pregnancy can result in the death of an unborn baby and birth defects.
