Learn about PERJETA-based treatment before surgery

Treatment before breast cancer surgery (also known as neoadjuvant treatment) may be an option for HER2-positive (HER2+) early breast cancer. Doctors may choose neoadjuvant treatment for early breast cancer to shrink a tumor.

PERJETA is part of an FDA-approved neoadjuvant treatment regimen for HER2+ early breast cancer, along with Herceptin® (trastuzumab) and chemotherapy. Talk to your doctor to determine if treatment before breast cancer surgery may be right for you.
