The original version of this article, which published in Current Oncology Reports, Volume 21, Issue 6, June 2019, contained an error in addressing the indication for use of neratinib in early stage breast cancer. In the final paragraph of page 3, under the “HER2-Positive Disease” heading, the authors originally stated that “neratinib’s label in the USA is for the treatment of high-risk early breast cancer only, pending results of the phase III trial of neratinib plus capecitabine vs. lapatinib plus capecitabine (NALA) in the metastatic setting.” According to the package insert, neratinib “is a kinase inhibitor indicated for the extended adjuvant treatment of adult patients with early stage HER2-overexpressed/amplified breast cancer, to follow adjuvant trastuzumab-based therapy.”

The authors apologize to the readers for this error.
