Additional comments
Er zijn 1.958 HER2+ patiënten met mammacarcinoom (zo'n 12% van alle patiënten met mammacarcinoom). Minder dan 200 patiënten betreft stadium 4 mammacarcinoom. Per additionele lijn mogelijk zo'n 20-25% van de patiënten minder (80-100 patiënten). Dit zou naar schatting uitkomen op zo'n 100-120 patiënten.
