Molecular Profile ERBB2 mutant
Therapy Afatinib
Indication/Tumor Type lung squamous cell carcinoma
Response Type predicted - sensitive


  • Case insensitive filtering will display rows where any text in any cell matches the filter term
  • Simple literal full or partial string matches
  • Separate multiple filter terms with a spaces, order doesn't matter (a b c and c b a are equivalent )
  • Filtering will only apply to rows that are already loaded on the page, filtering has no impact on query parameters
  • Use quotes to match a longer phrase which contains spaces "mtor c1483f"


  • Generally, the default sort order for tables is set to be first column ascending, however, specific tables may set a different default sort order.
  • Click on any column header arrows to sort by that column
  • Hold down the Shift key and click multiple columns to sort by more than one column, be sure to set ascending or descending order for a given column, before moving on to the next column.

ERBB2 mutant lung squamous cell carcinoma predicted - sensitive Afatinib Phase III Actionable In a Phase III trial (LUX-Lung 8), secondary analysis demonstrated favorable outcomes with Gilotrif (afatinib) treatment compared to Tarceva (erlotinib) in lung squamous cell carcinoma patients with ERBB (HER) family mutations, and ERBB2 (HER2) mutations predicted an OS (HR=0.06, p=0.02) and PFS (HR=0.06, p=0.02) benefit for Gilotrif (afatinib) over Tarceva (erlotinib) treatment (PMID: 29902295; NCT01523587). 29902295
