What is Herceptin Hylecta?

Herceptin Hylecta is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Genentech, Inc. Approval was based on two randomized trials, HannaH and SafeHER. Herceptin Hylecta is a combination of trastuzumab, a humanized IgG1 kappa monoclonal antibody, and hyaluronidase, an endoglycosidase. It is indicated in adults for the treatment of HER2-overexpressing breast cancer.

Herceptin Hylecta can be used:

  • As part of an adjuvant treatment course, including the chemotherapy regimen drugs doxorubicin, cyclophosphamide, and either paclitaxel or docetaxel
  • With the chemotherapy drugs docetaxel and carboplatin
  • As a single agent after treatment with multiple other therapies, including an anthracycline (doxorubicin) based therapy

Herceptin Hylecta can result in

  • Subclinical and clinical cardiac failure manifesting as CHF, and decreased LVEF, with the greatest risk when administered concurrently with anthracyclines. Discontinue Herceptin Hylecta for cardiomyopathy
  • Pulmonary toxicity – discontinue Herceptin Hylecta for anaphylaxis, angioedema, interstitial pneumonitis, or acute respiratory distress syndrome
  • Embryo-fetal toxicity – exposure during pregnancy can result in oligohydramnios, in some cases complicated by pulmonary hypoplasia and neonatal death. Patients are advised to use effective contraception

What doses of Herceptin Hylecta are available?

Herceptin Hylecta is available as an injection formulation, in the following doses: 600 mg trastuzumab and 10,000 units of hyaluronidase per 5 mL (120 mg/2,000 units per mL) solution in a single-dose vial.

Herceptin Hylecta is for subcutaneous use only and has different dosage and administration instructions than intravenous trastuzumab products. Do not substitute Herceptin Hylecta for or with ado-trastuzumab emtansine. The recommended dose of Herceptin Hylecta is 600 mg/10,000 units (600 mg trastuzumab and 10,000 units hyaluronidase) administered subcutaneously over approximately 2-5 minutes once every three weeks.

Please see the full prescribing information for the complete boxed warning and always speak with a healthcare professional about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
