Asia Pac J Oncol Nurs. 2017 Oct-Dec;4(4):323-329 The epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) is actively involved in the growth of multiple tumor types and has been found as an effective treatment target in various solid cancers, for example, lung cancer and head and neck cancer. Of effective drugs which target and inhibit EGFR functions, tyrosine kinase inhibitors have shown promising results, albeit at a cost of side effects, skin toxicity being the most common.
