Use of Roche's Herceptin Among HER2+ Gastric Cancer Patients May Double in China Over the Next Three Years

Herceptin (trastuzumab) has been included in the Provincial Reimbursement Drug List (PRDL) of Jiangsu Province recently, and the interviewed payers also support the inclusion of Herceptin in the next update of the National Reimbursement Drug List (NRDL). These findings may signify a more widespread use of Herceptin in China and align with our survey finding that the use of Herceptin in HER2+ gastric cancer patients can almost double in the next three years.
