Study Phase
Study Design
Observational Model: Case-Only, Time Perspective: Prospective
Overall Status
1. Trial design: Prospective observational study

2. Target population: 200 NSCLC patients with histologically or cytologically confirmed stage IV or recurrent NSCLC who have progressive disease after 1st line chemotherapy who consent for study participation and meet the study selection criteria

3. Primary objective: To investigate C-met expression/amplification and EGFR gene mutations in NSCLC patients treated with Erlotinib

- C-met expression by IHC C-met amplification by SISH EGFR mutation by real time PCR

4. We will also assess the correlation of EGFR mutations and c-MET with clinical outcome (Overall Response Rate, Progression Free survival )

5. Duration of Trial Recruitment: 2 years
Criteria for eligibility
Healthy Volunteers: No
Maximum Age: 80 Years
Minimum Age: 19 Years
Gender: Both
Criteria: Inclusion Criteria:

- ECOG performance from 0 to 3

- Expected survival more than 12 weeks

Exclusion Criteria:

- Previous treatment of EGFR-tyrosine kinase inhibitors

- Severe hypersensitivity to erlotinib

- Residual toxicities (above grade 2) after previous chemotherapy

- Total bilirubin more than 1.5x of upper normal limit Liver function tests more than 2.5x of upper normal limits
