The epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) is a transmembrane protein classified as a tyrosine kinase. EGFR is often shown to be overexpressed in certain human carcinoma cells which leads to enhanced activation of the anti-apoptotic Ras signal transduction cascades, subsequently resulting in increased survival of cancer cells and uncontrolled cell proliferation. EGFR inhibitors bind to the ATP-binding site and inhibit tyrosine kinase, the downstream signaling cascades are also inhibited, resulting in inhibited malignant cell proliferation. EGFR inhibitors are indicated for the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer, breast cancer, thyroid cancer, pancreatic cancer, and solid tumors. Amgen, AstraZeneca, Boehringer Ingelheim, Jiangsu Hengrui Pharma, Sanofi, Daiichi Sankyo Company, and Eli Lilly & Company are some of the major players in the EGFR inhibitors market.
