Why are there no studies on Herceptin only?

Re: Herceptin Only

Because it hasn't been tested that way at all - only with chemo. There is a study on metastatic women testing it with Arimidex vs Arimidex alone.

Kind regards

1.9cm tumor, ER+PR-, Her2 3+(rt side)
2 micromets to sentinel node

left 3mm DCIS - low grade ER+PR+Her2 neg
lumpectomies 9/7/04
4DD AC followed by 4 DD taxol
Used Leukine instead of Neulasta
35 rads on right side only
4/05 started Tamoxifen
Started Herceptin 4 months after last Taxol due to
trial results and 2005 ASCO meeting & recommendations
Oophorectomy 8/05
Started Arimidex 9/05
Finished Herceptin (16 months) 9/06
