Clinical trials are an important way to improve treatment for people with cancer. While most are continuing during the COVID-19 pandemic, the period of time that clinical trials are available and recruiting may change quickly. If you would like to get involved in a clinical trial, speak to your treatment team or the health service where the clinical trial is being undertaken, to confirm it is open and appropriate for you. For cancer information and support, call Cancer Council's experienced cancer nurses on 13 11 20 Monday to Friday from 9am-5pm.

Trial Overview Read MoreRead more

This Phase II study is trying to understand how effective a targeted therapy (trastuzumab emtansine) is in people with cancers with HER2 amplifications or mutations.
 

This trial is treating patients with solid cancers with HER2 amplifications or mutations.

This is a systemic therapy trial.

You may be able to join this trial if:

  • You have had treatment but your cancer has gotten worse or has not responded to the treatment you have been given.
  • You have had treatment, but your cancer has come back.

You may be excluded from this trial if:

  • You have a certain disease or psychological condition.
  • You have been diagnosed with a prior or secondary type of cancer.
  • You have had certain treatments, surgical procedures or drugs.

Clinical trials have complex eligibility criteria - talk to your doctor about your interest in this trial.
