Answer

Since December 2017, the FDA has approved 4 biosimilars of trastuzumab (Herzuma, Ogivri, Ontruzant, Trazimera) to treat HER2-overexpressed breast cancer. All biosimilars of trastuzumab have demonstrated efficacies and safety outcomes similar to those of the standard trastuzumab. [25, 26, 27, 28]
