The purpose

Epidermal growth factor receptor-tyrosin kinase inhibitor (EGFR-TKI, Erlotinib) has demonstrated its efficacy in patients with non-small cell lung cancer and pancreatic cancer. But, their use is associated with dermatologic reactions of varying severity. Incidence of Erlotinib related skin effect (ERSE) was reported ~75% in NSCLC and pancreatic cancer phase III trials. Even though the dermatologic reactions could be a surrogated marker, it may be cause of dose modification. Also, it could give significant physical and psycho-social discomfort to patients. However, there is still a wide variety of drugs used- including, steroid, antibiotics, and vitamin D without any clear evidence based management recommendation. The role of epidermal growth factor (EGF) has been extensively investigated in normal and pathological wound healing. It is implicated in keratinocyte migration, fibroblast function and the formation of granulation tissue. The first growth factor to be isolated growth factor therapy has progressed into clinical practice in the treatment of wounds. Therefore, the investigators propose an epidermal growth factor ointment apply for patients with Erlotinib related skin effects.
