Pertuzumab (also called 2C4, trade name Omnitarg) is a monoclonal antibody. The first of its class in a line of agents called "HER dimerization inhibitors". By binding to HER2, it inhibits the dimerization of HER2 with other HER receptors, which is hypothesized to result in slowed tumor growth.[1] Pertuzumab is currently being developed by Genentech.

Early clinical trials of pertuzumab in prostate, breast, and ovarian cancers have been met with limited success.[2]
