Has anyone had any success with Herceptin? I talked to a different doctor yesterday, and because my cancer progressed so rapidly while I was pregnant, he thought Herceptin might be worth trying some day. Wondered if anyone had been down that road?

As you might know Herceptin has been used as a breast cancer drug, it targets HER2. This is a epidermal growth factor. HER1 or EGFR is the target of Tarceva

It is interesting your Dr is trying this it is not the usual drug. I think that is good, he must be thinking "out of the box"

I am not a Dr, but I think that he is trying other drugs is probably good.

You might want to ask the Dr what he/she thinks about CI-1033.

It targets 4 growth factors, HER1, HER2, HER3, HER4.

Not sure if more is better.
