Scientific Finding: EGFR is target for Chemotherapy

Los Angeles, CA (USC-Keck School of MedicineOriginal Article) April 5th, 2009

Abstract: The epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) is overexpressed in as many as 77% of colorectal cancer (CRC) cases. The EGFR is known to be involved in carcinogenetic processes such as cell proliferation, apoptosis, angiogenesis, cell motility, and metastasis. Preclinical and clinical studies have shown that targeting EGFR is a valid strategy for anticancer therapy. Currently, 2 classes of anti-EGFR agents are in phase II/III clinical development: monoclonal antibodies and tyrosine kinase (TK) inhibitors. The most established monoclonal antibody is cetuximab, the only EGFR inhibitor that is currently approved for use in patients with metastatic CRC. Several clinical studies of cetuximab, as a single agent or in combination with irinotecan, have shown promising efficacy in patients with metastatic CRC. READ MORE
