Trastuzumab (Herceptin®) is a monoclonal antibody produced by recombinant DNA technology that binds specifically to the human epidermal growth factor receptor-2- protein (also known as HER2). A consequence of the amplification of gene HER2 is an increase in the expression of protein HER2 in the surface of the tumour cells, which result in a..
