SB3, a trastuzumab (Herceptin) biosimilar developed by Merck and Samsung Bioepsis, induced a rate of breast pathologic complete response (bpCR) similar to trastuzumab in women with HER2-positive breast cancer, according to results from a phase III study of 800 patients.

In December 2017, the FDA approved another trastuzumab biosimilar, MYL-1401O (Ogivri; trastuzumab-dkst), for HER2-positive patients with breast cancer or metastatic gastric or gastroesophageal junction adenocarcinoma.
