|1.||Non-Small-Cell Lung Carcinoma (Carcinoma, Non-Small Cell Lung)
02/24/2005 - "Here we report the case of a patient with EGFR-mutant, gefitinib-responsive, advanced non-small-cell lung cancer who had a relapse after two years of complete remission during treatment with gefitinib. "
10/01/2004 - "(8) In practice, more thorough assessment of gefitinib is needed to determine whether this new drug is beneficial for patients with non small-cell lung cancer. "
08/01/2004 - "There have been several reports of good response to gefitinib therapy at the first time in patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer, but few reports of recurrence in patients after successful therapy with this agent. "
11/01/2008 - "Gefitinib has been reported to be more effective in patients with non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) who had low or never-smoking history than for heavier smokers. "
07/11/2005 - "Gefitinib is more effective in never-smokers with non-small-cell lung cancer: experience among Asian patients."
08/04/2004 - "Patients with P-Akt-positive tumors who received gefitinib had a better response rate, disease control rate, and time to progression than patients with P-Akt-negative tumors, suggesting that gefitinib may be most effective in patients with basal Akt activation."
04/01/2004 - "Gefitinib dramatically reduced the proportion of viable hypoxic cells in LCC6(HER-2) and MCF-7(HER-2) tumors. "
08/01/2013 - "The patient was immediately treated with gefitinib because the tumor was judged inoperable, but after two months she obtained an important clinical remission and was submitted to radical surgery. "
12/01/2009 - "Imaging demonstrated that a marked decrease in tumor uptake of (111)In-EC-P-Tyr occurred after 3 d of gefitinib therapy in A431 cells (gefitinib-sensitive), but not in H441 cells (gefitinib-resistant). "
01/01/2005 - "ZD1839 treatment resulted in a marked decrease in tumor growth compared with saline treatment. "
|3.||Lung Neoplasms (Lung Cancer)
03/15/2014 - "Our data suggest additive rather than synergistic interactions between gefitinib and radiation and that a combination of short-course gefitinib and high-dose/-fraction radiation may have the greatest potential against the subsets of lung cancers harboring activating mutations in the EGFR gene."
01/01/2011 - "Rapid symptomatic improvement in gefitinib-treated patients with EGFR-mutated lung cancer: possible role of downregulation of inflammatory molecules?"
04/01/2004 - "EGFR mutants render Iressa more effective in treating lung cancer."
03/15/2014 - "Taken together, our findings suggest a novel insight that EGFR endocytosis is a rational therapeutic target in lung cancer with wtEGFR, in which the combined efficacy with gefitinib is expected. "
02/01/2011 - "Although gefitinib is known to possess an effect inducing apoptosis against lung cancer, it is not clear how clinically effective it is in this regard in patients with lung cancer. "
07/01/2009 - "We expected positive results from gefitinib, because the patient fitted the optimal profile: female, never smoker, adenocarcinoma histology. "
01/01/2010 - "A female Asian nonsmoker with adenocarcinoma was given gefitinib as first-line treatment with significant efficacy. "
01/01/2009 - "Gefitinib treatment was of significantly greater benefit in patients with adenocarcinoma than in those with non-adenocarcinoma (test for interaction p< 0.001). "
12/01/2008 - "Gefitinib is a molecular targeting agent and more effective in patients with characteristics of oriental ethnicity, female gender, adenocarcinoma and non-smokers. "
05/01/2011 - "Gefitinib is less effective in non-adenocarcinoma NSCLC harboring EGFR mutations than adenocarcinoma harboring EGFR mutations."
|5.||Neoplasm Metastasis (Metastasis)
08/01/2004 - "In both patients gefitinib acted dramatically on all the lesions including the brain metastases, resulting in a marked decrease of the elevated CEA levels, and improvement of their quality of life. "
01/01/2014 - "Further, gefitinib is effective in patients with brain metastases because of its low molecular weight and excellent penetration of the blood-brain barrier. "
12/01/2011 - "She showed a rapid clinical and radiologic response with complete remission of the cerebral metastases 6 weeks after starting gefitinib. "
09/01/2012 - "The other patient continued gefitinib during WBRT and achieved complete remission of the miliary metastases and lived 18 months longer. "
12/01/2008 - "In patients with NSCLC, gefitinib may be effective in the treatment of bone metastases."
