From WikiMD's free health, diet & wellness encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

No information is available on the clinical use of ado-trastuzumab during breastfeeding. Because trastuzumab is a large protein molecule with a molecular weight of 145,531, the amount in milk is likely to be very low and absorption is unlikely because it is probably destroyed in the infant's gastrointestinal tract. However, ado-trastuzumab emtansine also contains the small molecule cytotoxin, DM1, the manufacturer recommends avoiding breastfeeding during and for 7 months following ado-trastuzumab emtansine therapy.
