In the patient population with early-stage human epidermal growth factor receptor 2-positive/hormone receptor-positive breast cancer who initiate neratinib within 1 year of trastuzumab-based therapy, the absolute 5-year invasive disease-free survival benefit versus placebo is 5.1%, and absolute 8-year overall survival benefit is 2.1%. Among those with residual disease after neoadjuvant therapy (non-pathologic complete response), absolute gains with neratinib are 7.4% and 9.1%, respectively.
