Brief Summary:

New treatment strategies have been developed in lung cancer targeting the Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor (EGFR). Patients with an activating mutation in the EGFR have high responds rates to the treatment and should be treated with a EGFR inhibitor as first line of treatment. Some wild type patients do as well respond but selection of these patients is more difficult.

Erlotinib has been labeling with 11C and used as a new PET tracer. Accumulation of the tracer (11C-erlotinib) in tumors has showed promising results for selection of responders.

The investigators now want to conduct a larger clinical study to evaluate if accumulation of tracer on a pre-treatment 11C-erlotinib PET/CT can predict responds to erlotinib.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: NSCLC, erlotinib treatment, 11C-erlotinib PET/CT Other: 11C-erlotinib PET/CT

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Accumulation of 11c-erlotinib in tumors before and after treatment with erlotinib [ Time Frame: From date of inclusion until the date of first documented progression on the erlotinib treatment or date of death, whichever came first, assessed up to 30 months ]
    Accumulation of 11c-erlotinib in tumors will be correlated to PFS on erlotinib treatment.
