Tykerb Uses

How Does Tykerb Work?

Tykerb works inside of cancer cells. It binds to the inside of two types of receptors: epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) and human epidermal receptor type 2 (HER2). These two receptors are important for the growth of breast cancer and cells, and Tykerb (when used in combination with Xeloda) helps to slow down this growth.

Off-Label Tykerb Uses

On occasion, your healthcare provider may recommend Tykerb for something other than breast cancer. At this time, there are no universally accepted off-label Tykerb uses.
