Trial Description


This double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized, multicenter, international, parallel arm study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of Perjeta (pertuzumab) in combination with Herceptin (trastuzumab), fluoropyrimidine and cisplatin as first-line treatment in patients with HER2-positive metastatic gastroesophageal junction or gastric cancer. Patients will be randomized to receive Perjeta 840 mg or placebo intravenously (iv) every 3 weeks in combination with Herceptin (initial dose of 8 mg/kg iv followed by 6 mg/kg iv every 3 weeks) and cisplatin and fluoropyrimidine (capecitabine or 5-fluorouracil) for the first 6 treatment cycles. Patients will continue to receive Perjeta or placebo and Herceptin until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity occurs.
