The FDA has granted an approval to SB3 (Ontruzant; trastuzumab-dttb), a trastuzumab (Herceptin) biosimilar, for the treatment of patients with HER2-overexpressing breast cancer or metastatic gastric or gastroesophageal junction adenocarcinoma.

The European Commission approved SB3 in November 2017.
