Mutation predicted response to erlotinib in advanced NSCLC

October 2008
Hem/Onc Today;10/25/2008, Vol. 9 Issue 19, p19
The article discusses a study which reported the benefit of erlotinib for treating patients with non-small cell lung cancer if they had epidermal growth factor receptor mutations. Data from the study were presented by Rafael Rosell, chief of the medical oncology service at the Catalan Institute of Oncology, at the 50th Annual Meeting of the American Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology. The number of patients who participated in the study and the two mutations screened during the study are indicated.

    Background: Several EGFR-tyrosine kinase inhibitors (EGFR-TKIs) including erlotinib, gefitinib, afatinib and icotinib are currently available as treatment for patients with advanced non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) who harbor EGFR mutations. However, no head to head trials between these TKIs...

    The paradigm for first-line treatment of relapsed or metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is changing. Large phase III trials demonstrated that, in 2010, we cannot select a therapy without an accurate definition of tumor histology and epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) status....

However, this disease can be difficult to treat, with many patients not presenting until the advanced stage, and therefore facing a poor prognosis....

    The first targeted agents approved for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) treatment, the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) gefitinib and erlotinib, have an impressive activity in the presence of activating mutations of the EGFR gene. However, all patients...

    Subsets of patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) who carry somatic mutations in the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) have responded remarkably well to a tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI), gefitinib. Despite the dramatic response to this inhibitor, most patients nevertheless...

    Background Meta-analyses were conducted to characterize patterns of mutation incidence in non small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Design Nine genes with the most complete published mutation coincidence data were evaluated. One meta-analysis generated a ‘mutMap’ to visually represent...
