Clinical Trial Details

Short Title
Official Title
A Randomized, Multicenter, Open-Label Phase III Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of Trastuzumab Emtansine versus Trastuzumab as Adjuvant Therapy for Patients with HER2-Positive Primary Breast Cancer who have Residual Tumor Present Pathologically in the Breast or Axillary Lymph Nodes Following Preoperative Therapy

Participants in this study have HER2-positive primary non-metastatic breast cancer and had evidence of cancer in breast and lymph nodes after chemotherapy. Participants will receive either trastuzumab emtansine, (previously known as T-DM1) or Trastuzumab alone. Trastuzumab emtansine is an investigational drug, which means that health authorities have not approved trastuzumab emtansine for the treatment of HER2-positive primary non-metastatic breast cancer. The purpose of this research study is to find out the effects of trastuzumab emtansine versus trastuzumab and which is more effective in treating breast cancer.
