Sandoz has entered into an agreement with EirGenix, Inc., to commercialize the proposed trastuzumab (Herceptin) biosimilar EG12014 for use as a treatment of patients with HER2-positive breast and select gastric cancers.1

In the double-blind, parallel group, 3-arm phase I trial (EGC001; NCT03180242), investigators evaluated the pharmacokinetic similarity between the biosimilar and trastuzumab in 84 healthy male patients.
