Comparison of EGFR mutation status between plasma and tumor tissue in non-small cell lung cancer using the Scorpion ARMS method and the possible prognostic significance of plasma EGFR mutation status.

Abstract

BACKGROUND The aims were to compare the consistency of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutations in the plasma and tumor tissue of NSCLC patients, and to explore the prognostic significance of plasma EGFR mutation status in tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs)-treated patients with tumor EGFR mutation. METHODS We evaluated EGFR gene (exons 18, 19, 20… (More)
