This application is based on results from an open-label, randomized, global phase III clinical study (the KATHERINE study), evaluating efficacy and safety of Kadcyla adjuvant therapy compared to Herceptin in almost 1,500 people with HER2-positive early breast cancer who had invasive residual disease
in the breast and/or axillary lymph nodes following neoadjuvant therapy including Herceptin.
