Debu Tripathy, MD, chair of Breast Medical Oncology, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, discusses immunotherapy in HER2-positive breast cancer.

With many mature data being presented in the near future, Tripathy says that trials with combinations of standard chemotherapy and immunotherapy, trastuzumab (Herceptin) and pertuzumab (Perjeta), are promising.

On the other hand, Tripathy adds, estrogen receptor-positive/HER2-negative breast cancers have been shown to be less immunogenic.
