Inhibition of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) signaling is an important approach to the targeted treatment of cancer. However, although aberrant EGFR signaling is widespread in cancer, EGFR inhibition is primarily effective only in a limited number of lung cancers that express specific EGFR mutations and are oncogene addicted. Thus, the ability to render cancer cells with primary EGFR resistance sensitive to EGFR inhibition is potentially of enormous clinical value, given the wide prev...
