Purpose: Dual blockade with trastuzumab and pertuzumab in combination with chemotherapy is the recommended first-line therapy for human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2)-positive metastatic breast cancer (mBC). The purpose of this retrospective study is to examine the clinical outcomes of the trastuzumab biosimilar SB3 in first-line dual blockade treatment using real-world data of patients with HER-positive mBC.

Methods: In Denmark, all women with breast cancer are registered in the database of the Danish Breast Cancer Group (DBCG). From this prospective observational registry, we extracted information on primary diagnosis and treatment of all women with HER2-positive mBC who received first-line treatment with SB3 and pertuzumab from September 1, 2018, to February 29, 2020. Retrospectively collected data from the DBCG database included information concerning treatment start, end, and reason for discontinuation. The primary endpoints for the study were overall survival (OS) and progression-free survival (PFS).

Results: The study included 117 women who received first-line treatment with SB3 and pertuzumab for their HER2-positive mBC. The study population had a mean age of 60 years. A total of 71 patients (61%) had recurrent disease and 46 patients (39%) presented with de novo mBC. The median follow-up was 11.1 and 15.4 months for PFS and OS, respectively. At 12 months, OS was 84% (95% confidence interval [CI], 78-91), whereas the median OS was not reached. The median PFS was 12.7 months (95% CI, 11.1-16.2). Median time on treatment was 8.7 months (95% CI, 7.6-11.4); 36 patients (31%) were still on treatment at end of study.

Conclusions: This retrospective real-world, nationwide study demonstrated comparable median PFS to the historical data of using reference trastuzumab and pertuzumab as first-line dual blockade.
