As a 2nd generation EGFR-TKI that irreversibly binds to EGFR receptors, afatinib is currently recommended as the standard first-line treatment for EGFR mutation-positive lung cancer, and c...
Treatment efficacy of afatinib will be assessed in patients with lung cancer harboring EGFR mutations which were detected from circulating tumor DNA.
Until recently, the first line treatment of metastatic Non Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) was a platine-based chemotherapy. It has been changed by the discovery of EGFR (Epidermal Growth F...
The purpose of this study is to compare chemotherapy and gefitinib in combination with gefitinib alone as first-line therapy for adenocarcinoma, in terms of efficacy and safety.
The aim of the study is to determine the Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD) of afatinib in combination with 3-weekly trastuzumab in HER2 overexpressing cancer and to assess the efficacy of afati...
Human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) mutation in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is an oncogenic driver that possibly becomes a druggable target to HER2-targeted therapy. The benefit of ...
Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) gefitinib has demonstrated dramatic clinical efficacy in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients. However, its therapeutic e...
Afatinib exhibits therapeutic efficacy for lung adenocarcinoma patients harboring HER2 exon 20 insertions. HER2 S310Y single site substitution was discovered in recent years and afatinib efficacy for ...
Overcoming EGFR-TKI resistant which has the initial enthusiasm over substantial clinical responses is a formidable challenge on nowadays. In this study, we showed that cholesterol level in lipid rafts...
Afatinib is an irreversible multi-targeted TKI, used in the treatment with EGFR mutated non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). The purpose of this study is to explore the molecular pharmacokinetic mechan...
Tumors or cancer of the LUNG.
A collective term for precoordinated organ/neoplasm headings locating neoplasms by organ, as BRAIN NEOPLASMS; DUODENAL NEOPLASMS; LIVER NEOPLASMS; etc.
Absence of air in the entire or part of a lung, such as an incompletely inflated neonate lung or a collapsed adult lung. Pulmonary atelectasis can be caused by airway obstruction, lung compression, fibrotic contraction, or other factors.
A diverse group of lung diseases that affect the lung parenchyma. They are characterized by an initial inflammation of PULMONARY ALVEOLI that extends to the interstitium and beyond leading to diffuse PULMONARY FIBROSIS. Interstitial lung diseases are classified by their etiology (known or unknown causes), and radiological-pathological features.
Primary or metastatic neoplasms of the CEREBELLUM. Tumors in this location frequently present with ATAXIA or signs of INTRACRANIAL HYPERTENSION due to obstruction of the fourth ventricle. Common primary cerebellar tumors include fibrillary ASTROCYTOMA and cerebellar HEMANGIOBLASTOMA. The cerebellum is a relatively common site for tumor metastases from the lung, breast, and other distant organs. (From Okazaki & Scheithauer, Atlas of Neuropathology, 1988, p86 and p141)
