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.
