|Description||Erlotinib is an EGFR inhibitor with IC50 of 2 nM, >1000-fold more sensitive for EGFR than human c-Src or v-Abl.|
Erlotinib HCl potently inhibits EGFR activation in intact cells including HNS human head and neck tumor cells (IC50 20nM), DiFi human colon cancer cells and MDA MB-468 human breast cancer cells. Erlotinib HCl (1 μM) induces apoptosis in DiFi human colon cancer cells.  Erlotinib inhibits growth of a panel of NSCLC cell lines including A549, H322, H3255, H358 H661, H1650, H1975, H1299, H596 with IC50 ranging from 29 nM to >20 μM.  Erlotinib HCl(2 μM) significantly inhibits growth of AsPC-1 and BxPC-3 pancreatic cells.  The effects of Erlotinib HCl in combination with gemcitabine are considered additive in KRAS-mutated pancreatic cancer cells. Ten micromolar of Erlotinib HCl inhibits EGFR phospho-rylation at the Y845 (Src-dependent phosphorylation) and Y1068 (auto-phosphorylation) sites.  Combination with Erlotinib HCl could down-modulate rapamycin-stimulated Akt activity and produces a synergistic effect on cell growth inhibition.
