Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a frequent cancer with limited treatment options and poor prognosis. Tumorigenesis has been linked with macrophage-mediated chronic inflammation and diverse signalling pathways, including the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) pathway. The precise role of EGFR in HCC is unknown, and EGFR inhibitors have shown(More)
The epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) is a transmembrane receptor tyrosine kinase that is activated by several ligands leading to the activation of diverse signaling pathways controlling mainly proliferation, differentiation, and survival. The EGFR signaling axis has been shown to play a key role during liver regeneration following acute and chronic(More)
The epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) regulates cellular expression levels of breast cancer resistance protein (humans: ABCG2, rodents: Abcg2) via its downstream signaling pathways. Drugs that inhibit EGFR signaling (e.g., tyrosine kinase inhibitors, antibodies) may lead to ABCG2-mediated drug-drug interactions (DDIs) by changing the disposition of(More)
