This study will find out if trastuzumab deruxtecan is safe and works for participants with certain kinds of cancer. They must have HER2-positive gastric or gastro-esophageal junction (GEJ) cancer: - that cannot be removed surgically - that has moved to other parts of the body - that got worse during or after treatment that included trastuzumab The study will enroll about 72 participants at about 25 to 30 sites. Sites will be in North America, Australia, Israel, and the European Union. There might be other countries as well.

Official Title

A Phase 2, Open-label, Single-arm Trial of Trastuzumab Deruxtecan (DS 8201a) in HER2-positive, Unresectable or Metastatic Gastric or Gastro-esophageal Junction (GEJ) Adenocarcinoma Subjects Who Have Progressed on or After a Trastuzumab-containing Regimen (DESTINY-Gastric02)


Adenocarcinoma Gastric Stage IV With Metastases Adenocarcinoma - GEJ Human epidermal receptor 2 positive Unresectable or metastatic HER2 Prior treatment regimen included trastuzumab Adenocarcinoma Trastuzumab Trastuzumab deruxtecan
