Trastuzumab is a monoclonal antibody. Trastuzumab works by targeting the HER2/neu receptor on cancer cells.  The HER2 gene produces a protein receptor on the cell surface that signals normal cell growth by telling the cell to divide and multiply.  Some cancerous breast tissue has too much HER2 (HER2/neu overexpression), triggering the cells to divide and multiply very rapidly.


Trastuzumab is used to treat metastatic (spread) breast cancer.  It is effective against tumors that overexpress the HER2/neu protein. As part of chemotherapy regimen for adjuvant treatment of lymph-node positive, HER2/neu protein positive breast cancer. Treatment of gastric (stomach) cancer. It is not known whether or not trastuzumab may be effective in other cancers that may also have this HER-2/neu protein, including ovarian, colon, endometrial, lung, bladder, prostate, and salivary gland tumors.
