SABCS Abstract OT3-01-04: An Open-Label, Single-Arm, Phase II Study of Pertuzumab With High-Dose Trastuzumab for the Treatment of Central Nervous System Progression Post-Radiotherapy in Patients With HER2-Positive Metastatic Breast Cancer (PATRICIA)

Central nervous system (CNS) metastases are observed in up to half of patients with HER2-positive metastatic breast cancer (MBC), with incidence likely to continue to rise due to longer survival through improved systemic treatments. While radiotherapy-based approaches can be effective, there are potential short- and long-term toxicities, and patients frequently progress. CNS response to existing systemic therapies has been generally poor, and there is a high unmet need with no approved treatment for CNS metastases in HER2-positive MBC.
