Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) is a member of the ErbB family of receptor tyrosine kinases (RTK). EGFR overexpression or mutation in many different forms of cancers has highlighted its role as an important therapeutic target. Gefitinib, the first small molecule inhibitor of EGFR kinase function to be approved for the treatment of nonsmall cell lung(More)
UNLABELLED Constitutive activation of EGFR due to overexpression or mutation in tumor cells leads to dysregulated downstream cellular signaling pathways. Therefore, EGFR as well as its downstream effectors have been identified as important therapeutic targets. The FDA-approved small-molecule inhibitors of EGFR, gefitinib (Iressa) and erlotinib (Tarceva),(More)
