Pertuzumab is indicated for the treatment of HER2-positive breast cancer in the neoadjuvant and metastatic settings, and it is a humanized monoclonal antibody that targets the extracellular dimerization domain of HER2/neu, inhibiting its signaling.
Bevacizumab is indicated for the treatment of metastatic colorectal cancer, non-small cell lung cancer, glioblastoma, and metastatic renal cell carcinoma, and it is a monoclonal antibody that binds to VEGF, inhibiting angiogenesis.
