This information is intended for HCP only. This is a prescription based drug. Please consult your doctor if you need more information.

Kadcyla (Ado-Trastuzumab Emtansine) injection is an antibody-drug conjugate engineered to deliver potent chemotherapy directly to HER2-positive cancer cells, potentially limiting damage to healthy tissues. It combines two anti-cancer properties joined together by a stable linker: the HER2-targeting properties of trastuzumab (the active ingredient in Herceptin) and the chemotherapy agent DM1.

It is indicated for HER2-positive metastatic breast cancer (MBC), and as adjuvant treatment (after primary treatment) of patients with HER2-positive early breast cancer (EBC) who have residual invasive disease.

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