AbstractKey messages:
1. Of the four potential predictive biomarkers studied, epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) gene mutations are the most powerful predictor of the efficacy of EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitors in advanced non-small-cell lung cancer. They should be tested prior to treatment to select patients who are more likely to benefit from EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitors.
2. Chemotherapy is a better choice than EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitors in patients with wild-type EGFR
