We investigated the drug's effect on overall survival after a median follow-up of 2 years in the Herceptin Adjuvant (HERA) study. METHODS HERA is an international(More)
Recent clinical data indicate a synergistic therapeutic effect between trastuzumab and taxanes in neoadjuvantly treated HER2-positive breast cancer (BC) patients. In HER2+ BC experimental models and patients, we investigated whether this synergy depends on the ability of drug-induced stress to improve NK cell effectiveness and thus trastuzumab-mediated(More)
Two phase I, open-label trials in healthy subjects assessed whether co-administration with CYP3A4/CYP2C19 inhibitors, itraconazole/fluconazole (study A), or CYP3A4 inducer, rifampicin (study B), affects the exposure, safety/tolerability and pharmacokinetics of selumetinib and its metabolite N-desmethyl selumetinib. In study A (n = 26), subjects received a(More)
