What's being studied?

<ul class="seamTextUnorderedList"> <li class="seamTextUnorderedListItem">You will receive treatment based on ERBB2, PIK3CA, AKT1, MTOR, PTEN, and RB1 biomarker testing results.</li> <li class="seamTextUnorderedListItem">Fulvestrant (Faslodex®) is a type of hormone therapy called a selective estrogen receptor downregulator (SERD). SERDs bind to and break down estrogen receptors.</li> <li class="seamTextUnorderedListItem">Neratinib (Nerlynx®) is an anti-HER2 targeted therapy that stops cancer cells from growing by targeting and blocking the HER2 proteins that help cancer cells grow.</li> <li class="seamTextUnorderedListItem">Alpelisib (Piqray®) is a type of targeted therapy called a PI3K inhibitor. Blocking the PI3K pathway may slow or stop cancer cells from growing.</li> <li class="seamTextUnorderedListItem">Everolimus (Afinitor®) is a type of targeted therapy called an mTOR inhibitor. It works by interfering with a cancer cell's ability to divide and grow.</li> <li class="seamTextUnorderedListItem">Abemaciclib (Verzenio®) is a type of targeted therapy called a CDK4/6 inhibitor. CDK4/6 inhibitors block two enzymes, CDK4 and CDK6, that help cancer grow.</li> <li class="seamTextUnorderedListItem">In this trial, HER2 low is defined as IHC 1+ or 2+/FISH -.</li></ul>
