Truqap is a prescription drug approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in combination with fulvestrant to treat some cases of hormone receptor (HR)-positive, human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2)-negative breast cancer that is locally advanced or metastatic. Truqap may be considered in adults when breast cancer cells have tested positive for one or more PIK3CA/AKT1/PTEN genetic mutations. Truqap may be recommended in situations where breast cancer has progressed after at least one endocrine-based regimen (hormone therapy) in cases of metastatic (stage 4) breast cancer, or if breast cancer has recurred at or within 12 months of completing adjuvant (initial) therapy. Truqap is also referred to by its drug name, capivasertib.

Truqap is used as targeted therapy for breast cancer. Truqap is a member of a class of drugs called kinase inhibitors. Truqap is believed to work by inhibiting growth in cancer cells.
