GAIN-2 trastuzumab s.c. substudy
After completion of the GAIN-2 main study, HER2-positive patients will be eligible to participate in the trastuzumab subcutaneous substudy, in which antibodies are injected either into the abdominal wall or the thigh.
Please note that randomisation to the substudy is only possible once documentation has been completed for the main study. Moreover, the final trastuzumab infusion given during the GAIN-2 main study must be dosed at 6 mg kg/bw q3w. A subcutaneous injection of 600 mg trastuzumab q3w will then be administered during the substudy.
Trastuzumab will be administered for one year in total.
Please bring the trastuzumab s.c. substudy to the attention of your HER2-positive GAIN-2 patients. The aim is to recruit a total of 220 patients to the substudy. All GAIN-2 sites are eligible to take part.
