RATIONALE: Biological therapies such as gefitinib may stimulate the immune system in different ways and stop cancer cells from growing. It is not yet known whether gefitinib is effective i...
This is a phase I study of MK2206 (an AKT inhibitor)and gefitinib in nonsmall cell lung cancer patients who failed prior chemotherapy and epidermal growth factor receptor-tyrosine kinase i...
RATIONALE: Biological therapies such as gefitinib may interfere with the growth of the tumor cells and slow the growth of non-small cell lung cancer. PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the ...
RATIONALE: Gefitinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking the enzymes necessary for their growth. It is not yet known whether giving gefitinib after initial chemotherapy is effec...
The purpose of this study is to find a safe and effective dose of Erbitux and Iressa for subject with non small cell lung cancer.
Mutant EGFR Non-small cell lung cancer has benefit from gefitinib, but it has limited effect for wild-type EGFR tumors. Shikonin, a natural naphthoquinone isolated from a traditional Chinese medicine,...
This is the first report of long-term (>10 years) safety, tolerability, and survival data on patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) who received treatment with gefitinib, an epidermal growth...
The epidermal growth factor receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitors gefitinib and erlotinib are effective for advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). This meta-analysis compared their effectiveness a...
The five-year survival rate of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients is very low. MiR-873 is involved in the growth, metastasis, and differentiation of tumors. Herein, we determined the target g...
The most common EGFR mutations in non-small cell lung cancer are exon 19 deletions and exon 21 point mutations, which are both sensitive to EGFR-tyrosine kinase inhibitors. However, rare EGFR mutation...
Malignant neoplasm arising from the epithelium of the BRONCHI. It represents a large group of epithelial lung malignancies which can be divided into two clinical groups: SMALL CELL LUNG CANCER and NON-SMALL-CELL LUNG CARCINOMA.
A form of highly malignant lung cancer that is composed of small ovoid cells (SMALL CELL CARCINOMA).
A heterogeneous aggregate of at least three distinct histological types of lung cancer, including SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA; ADENOCARCINOMA; and LARGE CELL CARCINOMA. They are dealt with collectively because of their shared treatment strategy.
A quinazoline derivative and ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT that functions as a PROTEIN KINASE INHIBITOR for EGFR associated tyrosine kinase. It is used in the treatment of NON-SMALL CELL LUNG CANCER.
A cell adhesion molecule that contains extracellular immunoglobulin V and C2 domains. It mediates homophilic and heterophilic cell-cell adhesion independently of calcium, and acts as a tumor suppressor in NON-SMALL-CELL LUNG CANCER (NSCLC) cells. Its interaction with NATURAL KILLER CELLS is important for their cytotoxicity and its expression by MAST CELLS plays a role in their interaction with neurons; it may also function in synapse assembly, nerve growth and differentiation.
