The NSABP Trial B-31 and NCCTG Trial N9831 (B-31/N9831 trials, Romond et al. in N Engl J Med 353:1673-84, 2005. doi:10.1056/NEJMoa052122; Perez et al. in J Clin Oncol 32:3744-52, 2014. doi:10.1200/JCO.2014.55.5730) established the efficacy of adjuvant trastuzumab for patients with HER2-positive early stage breast cancer. We aimed to estimate the overall survival (OS) and relapse-free survival (RFS) of HER2-positive non-metastatic breast cancer patients treated with adjuvant trastuzumab in a clinical practice setting in the United States.
