Product Details:

  • Product Name: Trastuzumab
  • CAS #: 180288-69-1
  • Mode of Action:

    Trastuzumab binds to the HER2 (or c-erbB2) proto-oncogene, an EGF receptor-like protein found on 20-30% of breast cancer cells. The binding leads to antibody mediated (complement mediated) killing of the HER2 positive cells.

  • Pharmacodynamics:

    Used in the treatment of HER2-positive breast cancer. HER2 protein overexpression is observed in 25%-30% of primary breast cancers.Trastuzumab has been shown, in both in vitro assays and in animals, to inhibit the proliferation of human tumorcells that overexpress HER2. It is a mediator of antibody dependent cellular cytotoxicity, in that the binding of the antibody to HER2 overexpressing cells leads to preferential cell death.

  • Metabolism:

    Most likely removed by opsonization via the reticuloendothelial system.

  • Toxicity:

    Administration of trastuzumab can result in ventricular dysfunction and congestive heart failure. Risk of cardiotocity is especially elevated in patients recieving concurrent anthracycline or cyclophosphamide therapy.
