Traitement du cancer dépendant de HER2

Traitement du cancer dépendant de HER2


About 25% of primary human breast cancers are due to the deregulated expression of HER2 which is also found in many cancer types. HER2-targeted therapies have improved patients’ survival but both de novo and acquired resistance remain a challenge, as only 25% of the patients respond to the actual therapies. The team identified some miRNA including hsa miR-200b-3p and hsa-miR-429 from miR-200 family that are upregulated in HER2+ breast cancer cells and tumour samples. Their high level of expression is of bad prognosis for HER2+ breast cancer patients. Some of these miRNAs are also essential for HER2 expression and/or function. This allows to further stratify HER2+ breast cancer patients to offer a personalized treatment based on the modulation of miR-200b or miR-429. The team developed an optimized and vectorized anti-miRNA allowing specific inactivation of miR-429. Efficacy has been demonstrated in vitro in HER2+ cancer models of breast, gastric, ovarian and pancreatic origin as well as in a HER2+ breast cancer cell in ovo xenograft model.



  • Diagnosis of HER2+ breast cancer based on miRNA expression level
  • Evaluation of the prognosis of HER2+ breast cancer patients based on miRNA expression level
  • Novel HER2-targeted therapy based on anti-miRNA delivery
  • Treatment of HER2+ cancers


Competitive advantages

  • Therapeutic efficacy on HER2 including forms resistant to the actual therapeutic arsenal
  • MiRNAs level of expression can be assessed with non-invasive techniques
  • Anti-miR-429 targets HER2 expression
