Human Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor.

HER2/neu is a gene controlling production of a substance encouraging tumor growth (growth-stimulating factor). Patients whose tumors show abnormally high activity of this gene benefit from treatment with a special group of medications such as Herceptin and Tykerb.
