Efficacy of Erlotinib in Neoadjuvant Setting in Patients With Stage IIIA, N2-positive Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer

2014-07-23 21:08:58 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This study propose neoadjuvant chemotherapeutic role by erlotinib.

Description

It is widely accepted that patients with locally advanced non-small cell lung cancer would have better outcome with neoadjuvant therapy followed by surgery than surgery alone. However what should be the standard treatment option is still unclear.

Erlotinib (Tarceva®)is an oral inhibitor of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) tyrosine kinase and its anti-neoplastic effect is approved especially women, patients with adenocarcinoma, non-smoker and Asian population. Moreover if the malignant tissue has EGFR mutation, its efficacy is known to be enhanced.

So we expect that in those population, patients with locally advanced, N2 positive, erlotinib would be more beneficial than conventional cytotoxic chemotherapy in safety and convenience as neoadjuvant therapy.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

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.

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)
