The DESTINY-Breast02 trial is a phase III trial for people diagnosed with metastatic HER2-positive breast cancer or other stages of HER2-positive disease that can't be removed with surgery and have been previously treated with Kadcyla (chemical name: T-DM1 or ado-trastuzumab emtansine).

The trial is looking to see if the medicine fam-trastuzumab-deruxtecan-nxki offers more benefits than either Herceptin (chemical name: trastuzumab) and Xeloda (chemical name: capecitabine) or Tykerb (chemical name: lapatinib) and Xeloda.
