Overview Tykerb, medically known as Lapatinib, is a drug meant for those with advanced breast cancer. In other words, the drug is used to control breast cancer which has already begun to spread out to other parts of the body. Tykerb is usually deemed necessary when all other breast cancer drugs tend to be ineffective or futile. The drug works by destroying and eventually killing cancer cells hence preventing further spread.
