Tell us about any medications you are taking, including Trazimera. We will also ask for details about your healthcare provider, insurance, and your household income. This information is required by the pharmaceutical manufacturers who ship your medication.

If we determine that you may be eligible for Trazimera assistance, we will handle the application process for you. We will work directly with your healthcare provider to prepare your application documents. Once we have received the signed application and supporting documents, we will submit them to the patient assistance program on your behalf. Our service continues once you are enrolled in the Trazimera patient assistance program, and we will automatically request your Trazimera medication refills for up to 1 year.

What is Trazimera?

Trazimera is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Pfizer Inc. Trazimera (trastuzumab-qyyp) is biosimilar to Herceptin (trastuzumab), meaning that the biological product is approved based on data demonstrating that it is highly similar to an FDA-approved biological product, known as a reference product and that there are no clinically meaningful differences between the biosimilar product and the reference product.

Trazimera is a HER2/neu receptor antagonist indicated for:

  • The first-line treatment of human epidermal growth factor receptor-2 (HER2 positive) overexpressing breast cancer
  • The treatment of HER2-overexpressing metastatic gastric or gastroesophageal junction adenocarcinoma

Trazimera may be used in combination with chemotherapy regimens that include doxorubicin, cyclophosphamide, carboplatin, cisplatin, capecitabine, 5-fluorouracil, and either paclitaxel or docetaxel.

What doses of Trazimera are available?

Trazimera is available in injection form, in the following doses: 420 mg lyophilized powder in a multiple-dose vial for reconstitution.

See the full prescribing information for the complete boxed warning, and read the product information for the full patient safety information. Always speak with a healthcare professional about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.

Trazimera active ingredients

The active ingredient in Trazimera, trastuzumab, is a monoclonal antibody.

The most common adverse events of Trazimera in clinical trials:

  • Adjuvant breast cancer – headache, diarrhea, nausea, and chills

Your doctor will assess the benefits of using Trazimera against your risk of side effects. Patients are encouraged to report negative side effects or adverse reactions of Trazimera to the FDA. Visit www.fda.gov/medwatch, or call 1-800-FDA-1088.
