Trastuzumab and hyaluronidase-oysk combination injection is used together with other cancer medicines (eg, doxorubicin, cyclophosphamide, and either paclitaxel or docetaxel, docetaxel and carboplatin, or after anthracycline medicine) to treat HER2-overexpressing node-positive or node-negative (ER/PR negative or with one high risk feature) breast cancer.

Trastuzumab and hyaluronidase-oysk combination injection is also used together with paclitaxel for the first-line treatment of HER2-overexpressing metastatic (cancer that has spread) breast cancer. It is also used to treat HER2-overexpressing metastatic breast cancer in patients who have received one or more chemotherapy treatments.

Trastuzumab and hyaluronidase-oysk combination prevents the growth of some tumors that produce extra amounts of a certain substance known as the HER2 protein. It should only be used in patients whose tumors have been shown to produce extra amounts of this protein (HER2 overexpression).
