AbstractImportance of the field: Erlotinib, a potent inhibitor of EGFR activity, is approved as a monotherapy for the treatment of advanced NSCLC and in combination with gemcitabine for advanced pancreatic cancer. The oral administration and manageable toxicity of erlotinib, along with its similar efficacy to chemotherapy, make it an important option as either maintenance therapy or in second-/third-line for patients with NSCLC who have previously received first-line chemotherapy. It is also an emerging option in other treatment settings in NSCLC.
