Genentech announced the FDA granted approval to Phesgo, a new fixed-dose combination of Perjeta and Herceptin available in a single vial. It can be administered under the skin (subcutaneous injection) in just minutes, significantly reducing the amount of time a patient spends receiving treatment when compared to hours with IV administration.

The approval is important because this marks the first time that Genentech has combined two cancer medicines into a single formulation.
