Other Cancers

Other Advanced and/or Metastatic Cancers

Other types of cancers also express too much human epidermal growth factor receptor 2, or HER2, a protein normally involved in cell growth.

These cancers may include colorectal, lung, ovarian, endometrial, cervical, bladder, and pancreatic cancers. Too much HER2 protein may cause cancer to grow more quickly and spread to other parts of the body1. Standard treatments for HER2-expressing cancers vary depending on the type of cancer, and often include surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy.

Zymeworks is currently conducting clinical trials to test new potential targeted treatments for these diseases.
