Pertuzumab (also called 2C4, formerly known as 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. Omnitarg is currently being developed by Genentech.
