Advanced non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients harboring epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutations (del19 or L858R) show an impressive progression-free survival between 9 and 11 months when treated with gefitinib. Combination of gefitinib and berberine could improve efficacy in lung cancer with EGFR mutation in vivo and vitro. The investigators hypothesize that progression-free survival could be improved by combination of gefitinib and berberine.
