Researchers seek 600 men or postmenopausal women who have hormone receptor-positive, HER2-negative breast cancer that has spread to tissue, lymph nodes or another area of the body for a phase III study.
The phase II HERMIONE study is designed to compare MM-302, a new anti-HER2 medicine, plus trastuzumab, to chemotherapy of a physician’s choice, plus trastuzumab.
Not everyone has a big support system to lean on after a breast cancer diagnosis. Whether you are living alone, living far from friends and family, or simply keep only a small circle of close friends, you may find that you have to care for yourself more often than others. Still, there may be moments when having a stronger support system could be useful.
