Perjeta is a medicine that targets the HER2 receptor, which is designed specifically to prevent the HER2 receptor from pairing with other HER receptors on the surface of cancer cells. Binding of Perjeta to HER2 may also signal the body’s immune system to destroy the cancer cells. The mechanisms of action of Perjeta and Herceptin (trastuzumab) are believed to complement each other and provide a more comprehensive dual blockade of HER signaling pathways, thus preventing tumor cell growth and survival.1
