EGFR-L858R mutant enhances lung adenocarcinoma cell invasive ability and promotes malignant pleural effusion formation through activation of the CXCL12-CXCR4 pathway

Abstract

Malignant pleural effusion (MPE) is a common clinical problem in non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC) patients; however, the underlying mechanisms are still largely unknown. Recent studies indicate that the frequency of the L858R mutant form of the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR-L858R) is higher in lung adenocarcinoma with MPE than in surgically… (More)
