We performed a retrospective analysis of 22 patients with epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutation-positive non-small cell lung cancer who exhibited 1st/2nd generation EGFR-tyrosine kinase inhibitors resistance.
Association Between Environmental Tobacco Smoke Exposure and the Occurrence of EGFR Mutations and ALK Rearrangements in Never-smokers With Non-Small-cell Lung Cancer: Analyses From a Prospective Multinational ETS Registry.
Acquired resistance to epidermal growth factor receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitors (EGFR-TKIs) is the most important limiting factor for treatment efficiency in EGFR-mutant non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).
Superior Treatment Response and In-field Tumor Control in Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor-mutant Genotype of Stage III Nonsquamous Non-Small cell Lung Cancer Undergoing Definitive Concurrent Chemoradiotherapy.
The aim of this study was to detect the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) gene type at pre- and postchemotherapy to evaluate the impact of platinum-based chemotherapy on EGFR gene mutations and provide a theoretical foundation for clinical treatment.Around 40 serum DNA samples were collected from advanced nonsmall cell lung cancer patients who received platinum-based chemotherapy as first-line treatment in our hospital from August 1, 2014 to June 1, 2015.
Current clinical guidelines recommend epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutational testing in patients with metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) to predict the benefit of the tyrosine kinase inhibitor erlotinib as first-line treatment.
Here, we evaluate the efficacy and mechanistic rationale for combining mTOR and WEE1 inhibition as a potential therapy for lung cancers harboring <i>KRAS</i> mutations.<b>Experimental Design:</b> We investigated the synergistic effect of combining mTOR and WEE1 inhibitors on cell viability, apoptosis, and DNA damage repair response using a panel of human <i>KRAS-</i>mutant and wild type NSCLC cell lines and patient-derived xenograft cell lines.
Already approved by the US Food and Drug Administration in the narrow context of epidermal growth factor receptor-mutated non-small cell lung cancer, plasma genotyping assays are currently being investigated in a wide array of clinical settings and modalities.
