This is a phase III, double-blind, randomized, parallel-controlled, multicenter equivalence study to compare the efficacy and safety of pertuzumab biosimilar HLX11 vs. EU-Perjeta® on HER2-positive and HR-negative early-stage or locally advanced breast cancer with a primary tumor > 2 cm.

Patients are random assignment to 2 arms and treatment with either HLX11 or EU-Perjeta® , and received neoadjuvant THP regimen every 3- weeks 4 cycles,adjuvant AC every 3- weeks 4 cycles and pertuzumab+trastuzumab(HP) every 3- weeks 13cycles.


This is a phase III, double-blind, randomized, parallel-controlled, multicenter equivalence study to compare the efficacy and safety of pertuzumab biosimilar HLX11 vs. EU-Perjeta® on HER2-positive and HR-negative early-stage or locally advanced breast cancer with a primary tumor > 2 cm.Subjects will be randomly assigned to treatment group (HLX11) or control group (EU-Perjeta®) at 1:1 ratio. The stratification factors include disease category (early-stage vs. locally advanced) and geographic region (Asia vs. non-Asia).

Study drugs will be administered intravenously on a 3-weekly schedule and given consecutively on the same day in the following sequence trastuzumab, followed by pertuzumab and docetaxel(THP regimen) for neoadjuvant,Doxorubicin in combination with cyclophosphamide (AC) for adjuvant chemotherapy, then HP regimen for adjuvant HER2-targeted.

The primary endpoint is total pCR (tpCR) . Secondary efficacy endpoints include breast pCR (bpCR), objective response rate (ORR),Event-free survival (EFS) and Disease-free survival (DFS).

The safety indicators is incidence, type, severity, and causality of all adverse events (including serious adverse events and AESI) based on NCI CTCAE v5.0; Vital signs, physical examination, laboratory tests, cardiac function test, etc.

pharmacokinetic(PK) and immunogenicity is also assessed.

Inclusion Criteria

Primary breast cancer that is
Histologically confirmed invasive breast carcinoma with a primary tumor size of > 2 cm by standard local assessment technique
Breast cancer staging ( in accordance with the American Joint Commitee on Cancer(AJCC) staging system (8th edition)): early-stage (T2-3, N0-1, M0) or locally advanced (T2-3, N2 or N3, M0; T4, any N, M0)
HER2 positive confirmed by central laboratory, defined as immunohistochemistry (IHC) 3 +, or IHC 2+ and In Situ Hybridization (ISH) positive
Hormone receptor (HR, including estrogen receptor [ER] and progestin receptor [PR]) negative by central laboratory; ER negative is defined as < 1% nuclear staining, and PR negative is defined as < 1% nuclear staining
Left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) at baseline (within 42 days prior to randomization) ≥ 55% measured by echocardiography (ECHO) or multiple gated acquisition (MUGA) scan
Adequate major organ function, meeting the following criteria: Hematology (neither blood transfusion nor correction with hematopoietic stimulating factors within 14 days prior to randomization): white blood cell count ≥ 3.0 × 109/L; absolute neutrophil count ≥ 1.5 × 109/L; hemoglobin ≥ 90 g/L; platelet count ≥ 100 × 109/L; Serum chemistry: Aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and alanine aminotransferase (ALT) ≤ 2.5 × upper limit of normal (ULN), total bilirubin ≤ 1.5 × ULN; for subjects with known Gilbert syndrome, total bilirubin ≤ 2 × ULN; alkaline phosphatase ≤ 2.5 × ULN, serum creatinine ≤ 1.5 × ULN
Women of child-bearing potential have a negative result of serum pregnancy test at screening (within 7 days prior to randomization) and not in lactation, or are infertile. Male participants and women of childbearing potential use a "highly effective" contraceptive measures until 7 months after the last dose of investigational/reference product

Exclusion Criteria

Stage IV (metastatic) breast cancer, bilateral breast cancer, or multicentric (multiple tumors involving more than 1 quadrant) breast cancer
History of other malignancy within 5 years prior to screening (except for who have received radical treatment of carcinoma in situ of the cervix, basal cell carcinoma or squamous cell carcinoma of the skin )
With serious heart disease or medical history, including but not limited to the following conditions
History of documented heart failure or systolic dysfunction with any NYHA classification(LVEF < 50%); 2) High-risk uncontrolled arrhythmia, such as atrial tachycardia with a heart rate> 100 bpm at rest, significant ventricular arrhythmia (e.g.,ventricular tachycardia), or higher-grade atrioventricular (AV) block (i.e.,Mobitz II second-degree AV block or third degree AV block); 3) Unstable angina pectoris, or angina pectoris requiring anti-angina medication; 4) Evidence of transmural myocardial infarction on ECG; 5) Clinically-significant valvular heart disease; 6) Poorly controlled hypertension (systolic blood pressure> 150 mmHg and/or diastolic blood pressure> 100 mmHg)
