Efficacy and safety of single-agent pertuzumab (rhuMAb 2C4), a human epidermal growth factor receptor dimerization inhibitor, in castration-resistant prostate cancer after progression from taxane-based therapy
Neoplasm Recurrence, Local
Pertuzumab was well tolerated and resulted in no objective responses, but several patients had SD more than 23 weeks from a heavily pretreated population. Retrospective analysis suggested prolonged median survival time with pertuzumab compared with historical controls. Thus, inhibition of HER dimerization may have clinical utility in CRPC patients.
