BACKGROUND We aimed at investigating the outcomes of female patients with stage IIIB-IV adenocarcinoma of the lung according to EGFR and K-Ras mutational status. METHODS One hundred and three consecutive female patients genotyped at a single Italian Institution were analyzed. Patients were planned to receive first-line platinum-based chemotherapy (CT) and(More)
Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-associated mortality worldwide, and the mainstay of treatment remains to be personalised therapy. Tyrosine kinase inhibitors of the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR-TKIs) have been reported to exert a significant impact in the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), particularly in patients(More)
The enhancer of zeste-homolog 2 (EZH2) is involved in cancer development through gene silencing by trimethylation of lysine 27 of histone 3 (H3K27me3). The C/C genotype for the EZH2 rs3757441 single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) is linked with poor prognosis in metastatic colorectal cancer (CRC), but molecular and pathological characterization of this SNP(More)
v-Ki-ras2 Kirsten rat sarcoma viral oncogene homolog (KRAS) genotyping is required prior to anti-epidermal growth factor receptor monoclonal antibody therapy administered in cases of metastatic colorectal carcinoma (CRC). Thus, KRAS mutation screening is required for patient management. The present study reported the experience of KRAS/v-raf murine sarcoma(More)
