- Question from KathyM: Are there any updates about the 2-year arm of the HERA study? I was in the 2-year study and am very interested, especially around relapse. Thank you.
- Answers - Generosa Grana, M.D., F.A.C.P There is no data yet available on the HERA group that received 2 years of Herceptin (chemical name: trastuzumab). For the present, the standard remains 1 year of therapy. And we look forward to that data becoming available.
