    Purpose: We aimed to quantify the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutation in tumors and to analyze its prediction of EGFR-tyrosine kinase inhibitor (EGFR-TKI) treatment efficacy in EGFR mutation-positive non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients. Methods: We examined EGFR mutation...

    Background: Biomarker-driven clinical trials in advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) usually accept biopsy specimens only, as cytology specimens are supposed to be more challenging due to low neoplastic cell content and suboptimal DNA quantity. Objectives: We aimed to evaluate 2 aspects...

    Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) gene mutations and increased copy numbers are considered as predictors of response to EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitors (EGFR-TKI) in non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Lung cancer diagnosis is often based on cytology alone. However, almost all published...

    Objective. Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) and K-ras mutations guide treatment selection in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients. Although mutation status is routinely assessed in biopsies, cytological specimens are frequently the only samples available. We determined EGFR and...
