The Shamrock Trial

Home | Research | Clinical Trials

Breast Cancer Ireland is delighted to support a new exciting Clinical Trial –The Shamrock Trial, that is focussing on HER2+ patients, with recurrence. This trial will use of a new 4th generation drug, Deruxtecan, combined with initial chemotherapy. After one month it is hoped to de-escalate the use of chemotherapy, continue with the drug and it is anticipated after 2-3 year period that we will see a 100% response rate in patients – a cure for this particular subtype.

Participation is key in clinical trials. Please speak to your medical team if you are interested in this or other clinical trials ongoing in Ireland.
