EGFR Mutation Test Overview

Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutation analysis detects EGFR gene mutations in tumor specimens of patients with nonsmall
cell lung cancer (NSCLC). EGFR, when activated due to mutation, plays a role in cellular tumor growth and proliferation and is the target of
tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKI).
Up to 20% of NSCLC tumors harbour the EGFR mutation in Exons 18-21, and that ~85% of patients with these patients respond to TKI treatment

Frequently Asked Questions

EGFR Mutation test is done to detect mutations in EGFR gene in exons 18 to 21. Patients with mutations respond well to TKI treatment

EGFR Mutation test detects mutations in EGFR gene with real time PCR

Sample is provided by the recommending doctor. Tumor containing FFPE block (>10% of tumor). Tumor containing tissue fixed in 10% neutral buffered formalin with duration of 6 to 72 hours

Patients with EGFR mutation respond well to TKI treatment. KRAS mutations are associated with intrinsic
Tyrosine Kinase (TKI) resistance. Hence, KRAS codon 12/13 mutation testing would be useful for selection of the patients for TKI therapy.
Patients who are negative for EGFR mutations can additionally be tested for ALK rearrangement and the ALK positive NSCLC cases are likely to benefit from FDA approved crizotinib (XALKORI) therapy
Patients with PD-L1 expression predicts potential response to immunotherapy such as nivolumab and pembrolizumab
