Mutations in the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) gene are associated with a favorable clinical response to the EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitors gefitinib and erlotinib in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). We present here, a new method for the rapid detection of the two most common EGFR mutations (delE746-A750 and L858R) from clinical samples. The(More)
Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) gene mutation testing is essential for choosing appropriate treatment options in patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). However, a time delay occurs between histological diagnosis and molecular diagnosis in clinical situations. To minimize this delay, we developed a novel point-of-care test for(More)
Although cytotoxic chemotherapy is essential in epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR)‑mutated non‑small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), it is unclear which regimen is most effective. We retrospectively compared the efficacy of standard platinum‑based chemotherapy with that of combination chemotherapy using vinorelbine (VNR) plus dihydropyrimidine(More)
