Daiichi Sankyo and AstraZeneca are excited to announce that ENHERTU® (fam-trastuzumab deruxtecan-nxki) is now approved for a new indication.

ENHERTU is a HER2-directed antibody and topoisomerase inhibitor conjugate that was recently approved for use in adult patients with locally advanced or metastatic HER2-positive gastric or gastroesophageal junction (GEJ) adenocarcinoma who have received a prior trastuzumab-based regimen.1

ENHERTU has Boxed WARNINGS for Interstitial Lung Disease/Pneumonitis and Embryo-Fetal Toxicity. Please see the Important Safety Information below and the full Prescribing Information, including Boxed WARNINGS, and Medication Guide.

Please see the full Prescribing Information for details on dose reductions and modifications.

PATIENT SELECTION CONSIDERATIONS

Select patients with locally advanced or metastatic gastric cancer based on HER2 protein overexpression or HER2 gene amplification. Reassess HER2 status if it is feasible to obtain a new tumor specimen after prior trastuzumab-based therapy and before treatment with ENHERTU.
