Therapy Name Afatinib
Synonyms
Therapy Description

Gilotrif (afatinib) is a second-generation pan-Egfr inhibitor with activity against EGFR T790M and EGFR exon 19 and 21 deletions, and also inhibits ERBB2 (HER2), ERBB3 (HER3), ERBB4 (HER4) (PMID: 24435321, PMID: 25505694). Gilotrif (afatinib) is FDA approved for use in non-small cell lung cancer patients harboring non-resistant EGFR mutations, including exon 19 deletions, L858R, S768I, G719X, and L861Q, and for patients with metastatic squamous NSCLC (FDA.gov).

Filtering

  • 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"

Sorting

  • 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.

ERBB3 V104M urinary bladder cancer predicted - sensitive Afatinib Case Reports/Case Series Actionable In a Phase II clinical trial, a patient with ERBB3 V104M mutant urothelial carcinoma had improved progression free survival when treated with Gilotrif (afatinib), and median PFS was 6.6 months for patients with ERBB2 or ERBB3 alterations relative to 1.4 months for patients lacking alterations (PMID: 27044931). 27044931
