  • Cancer that has spread or is advanced/metastatic.
  • Hormone receptor-positive cancer (stimulated by estrogen/progesterone).
  • HER2-negative cancer (normal HER2 protein levels).

Ibrance, alongside specific hormone therapies, is prescribed. Hormone therapy curbs estrogen’s cancer-stimulating effects.
