Herceptin IV, either alone or in combination with targeted therapies/chemotherapies is indicated for the treatment of patients with HER2-positive early breast cancer (EBC), metastatic breast cancer (MBC), and metastatic gastric cancer or cancer of the gastro-esophageal junction.

If a patient becomes pregnant while receiving Herceptin, or within 7 months following the last dose of Herceptin, please immediately report pregnancy to the local Roche Adverse Event Line ator email at
