Nadia Harbeck, MD, PhD, Ludwig-Maximilians-University of Munich, Munich, Germany, discusses the updates in the ADAPT-HR-/HER2+ clinical trial which aimed to compare pathological complete response (pCR) in patients who received pertuzumab/trastuzumab along with paclitaxel and patients who responded early towards pertuzumab/trastuzumab. Prof. Harbeck presents the first survival data from this clinical trial and highlights the superiority of pCR in patients who received pertuzumab/trastuzumab along with paclitaxel.
