Sara A. Hurvitz, MD, of Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, University of Washington, discusses phase III findings of the HER2CLIMB-02 study, which showed the combination of tucatinib and trastuzumab emtansine improved progression-free survival in patients with previously treated, HER2-positive, locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer (including those with brain metastases) (Abstract GS01-10).
