The relationship between epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutation status and EGFR-tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKI) efficacy in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients has been well established. However, there is no available standard to define the optimal testing method and specimen type required for the detection of EGFR mutations. In this study, we compare results of ADx-amplification refractory mutation system (ARMS) and direct sequencing for the detection of EGFR mutation and… CONTINUE READING
