Purpose: Even if RAS-BRAF wild-type and HER2/MET-negative metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) patients frequently respond to anti-EGFR mAbs, acquired resistance almost invariably occurs. Mechanisms of resistance to EGFR blockade include the emergence of KRAS, NRAS, and EGFR extracellular domain mutations as well as HER2/MET alterations. However, these findings derive from retrospective studies that analyzed one single resistance mechanism at a time; moreover, it is still unclear how molecular… CONTINUE READING
