Gefitinib and Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor Gene Copy Number Aberrations in Esophageal Cancer

Abstract:

Purpose: The cancer esophagus gefitinib (COG) trial demonstrated improved progression free survival with the Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor (EGFR) tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI), gefitinib relative to placebo in advanced esophageal cancer patients with disease progression after chemotherapy. Rapid and durable responses were observed in a minority. We hypothesised that genetic aberration of the EGFR pathway would identify patients benefitting from gefitinib.
