AstraZeneca PLC said Monday that Enhertu has been recommended for approval in the European Union for patients with gastric cancer.

The Anglo-Swedish pharma major said Enhertu--trastuzumab deruxtecan--has been recommended in the EU by the European Medicines Agency as monotherapy for the treatment of patients with advanced HER2-positive gastric or gastroesophageal junction adenocarcinoma who have received a prior trastuzumab-based regimen.

Enhertu is a specifically engineered HER2-directed antibody drug conjugate being jointly developed and commercialized by AstraZeneca and Daiichi Sankyo.
