EGF receptor regulates the growth of many types of cells. EGF receptor overexpression is common in lung cancer. The EGF receptor can be blocked by an Ab such as the human-chimeric MAb cetuximab that binds to its extracellular domain or by small molecules such as gefitinib, a reversible inhibitor of EGF receptor tyrosine kinase (94,99). In two large phase 2 trials of patients previously treated with chemotherapy for nonsmall-cell lung cancer (NSCLC), response rates of up to 19% were reported for gefitinib (100,101).
