What Is Herceptin Hylecta?
Herceptin Hylecta (trastuzumab/hyaluronidase) combines Herceptin, a monoclonal antibody, with an enzyme as a treatment for HER2-overexpressing metastatic breast cancer. It is classified as a targeted therapy anticancer drug. It is often prescribed along with certain chemotherapy drugs.
Herceptin Hylecta is administered through subcutaneous injection.
What Does Simplefill Provide?
A diagnosis of metastatic cancer brings great stress into the lives of patients and their family members. Concerns about an uncertain future are difficult enough to deal with. When compounded by the financial burden of struggling to pay for costly, but essential treatments, often for an extended period of time, the quality of life for all suffers.
Simplefill aims to make life a little easier in such situations by raising prescription assistance awareness and serving as a bridge between those who need help and the programs and organizations that are offering it.
How Does Herceptin Hylecta Work?
HER2 genes produce proteins called HER2 receptors, which control the growth, self-repair, and division of healthy cells. When there are too many HER2 genes (gene amplification), there is an overabundance of HER2 receptors (receptor overexpression), which causes cells to multiply rapidly, leading to tumor formation and growth.
Herceptin is an antibody that was developed specifically to bind to HER2 receptors, which slows cell multiplication and targets the receptors for attack by the body’s immune system. The enzyme hyaluronidase helps the body use Herceptin more effectively.
