These results were presented in the second Presidential Symposium. Trastuzumab duocarmazine is an antibody drug conjugate that targets the HER2 protein with trastuzumab to deliver the cytotoxin duocarmycin after internalisation. Presented by Dr Cristina Saura (Vall d’Hebron Institute of Oncology, Spain), the TULIP trial (NCT03262935) aimed to demonstrate that trastuzumab duocarmazine (1.2 mg/kg every 3 weeks) is superior to physician's choice of treatment in prolonging PFS per blinded independent central review, as its primary endpoint [1]. Eligible patients were randomly assigned 2:1 t...
