Roche (OTC: RHHBY) today announced that results from a number of studies from across its growing breast cancer portfolio will be presented at the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium (SABCS), from 10-14 December 2019. These data include new results in HER2-positive breast cancer and studies of new molecules in hormone receptor-positive (HR-positive) breast cancer.

"For the past three decades we have remained dedicated to improving outcomes for people with breast cancer," said Levi Garraway, MD, Roche's Chief Medical Officer and Head of Global Product Development. "This sustained commitment is exemplified by new data for our approved and investigational medicines across the spectrum of breast cancer being presented at SABCS this year."

Key presentations

New data will be presented from a second interim overall survival (OS) analysis of the phase III APHINITY trial evaluating Perjeta® (pertuzumab) and Herceptin® (trastuzumab) plus chemotherapy (the Perjeta-based regimen), compared to Herceptin and chemotherapy, as an adjuvant treatment for HER2-positive early breast cancer (eBC). This latest interim OS analysis also includes updated descriptive invasive disease-free survival (iDFS) and cardiac safety data.

Roche will also present data from the primary analysis of the phase III FeDeriCa study which evaluated a new investigational fixed-dose combination (FDC) of Perjeta and Herceptin administered as a single subcutaneous (SC) formulation in combination with intravenous (IV) chemotherapy. The FDC is administered under the skin in just minutes, significantly reducing the time spent receiving treatment and providing people with HER2-positive breast cancer a potential new treatment option for faster delivery of the Perjeta-based regimen.

Data will also be presented from studies in HR-positive breast cancer, inc
