Dr. Tarantino was invited to share insights with fellow physicians by responding to a survey specifically tailored for Canadian oncologists. The survey focused on addressing key questions related to 2L HER2+ Breast Cancer and the DESTINY BREAST Trial, and Dr. Tarantino provides his expert responses here.

Q1: In which patient profiles would you consider standard of care T-DXd for in the 2L HER2+ mBC setting? And is there a patient profile you would not consider it?

Q2: What are the steps you take to optimally manage ILD for patients on T-DXd (The 5 S Rules)?

Q3: Any other AEs to be on a look out for?

Q4: What is the impact of DESTINY BREAST trial on triple-negative breast cancer?
