If Herceptin is Approved in Combination With Other Emerging Therapies it Will be in a Position to Retain Patient Share From Tykerb/Tyverb for the Treatment of HER2-Positive Breast Cancer

Genentech/Roche/Chugai's Drug in Combination With Herceptin and Taxotere Will Become Decision Resources Gold Standard Regimen by 2017, According to a New Report from Decision Resources

WALTHAM, Mass., Feb. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Decision Resources, one of the world's leading research and advisory firms for pharmaceutical and healthcare issues, finds that if Genentech/Roche/Chugai's Herceptin is approved in combination with emerging therapies, it will be in a position to retain patient share from GlaxoSmithKline's Tykerb/Tyverb for the treatment of human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2)-positive breast cancer. This is particularly true in the second- and subsequent HER2-positive treatment lines which are currently its most vulnerable market segments.

The new report entitled HER2-Positive Breast Cancer: Oncologists Are Eager for Improvements in Overall Survival Compared with Trastuzumab in the Metastatic Setting also finds that Genentech/Roche/Chugai's pertuzumab in combination with Herceptin and Sanofi Aventis' Taxotere will become Decision Resources' proprietary clinical gold standard regimen for HER2-positive breast cancer by 2017. This will occur following its approval for the indication in combination with Herceptin and Taxotere in 2013.

"Based on surveys and interviews we conducted with U.S. and European oncologists, as well as comparative drug analysis using our proprietary drug comparator model, we concluded that pertuzumab will have competitive advantages in efficacy when used in combination with Herceptin and Taxotere versus using Herceptin and Taxotere alone," stated Niamh Murphy, Ph.D., analyst at Decision Resources.
