Does hepertin only work on breast cancer or can it work on stomach cancer?

Herceptin targets a protein on the surfaces of some breast cancer cells. It intercepts growth signals sent to that protein. "Her" is the first three letters of the protein, and "ceptin" refers to intercepting the signal. Whe it works, it chokes off growth.
As far as I know, that protein is not present on the surface of stomach cancer cells. I think it's exclusive to breast cancer (and not all breast cancers). You should ask your oncologist, of course.
