Background: The epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) is part of the erbB family of receptor tyrosine kinases, including also HER2/erbB2, HER3/erbB3 and HER4/erbB4. Activation of ErbB receptors is initiated by ligand binding to their extracellular domain, leading to the formation of both, homo- and heterodimeric ErbB receptor complexes. Upon dimerization the receptor kinase undergo autophosphorylation at specific tyrosine residues within the intracellular domain, acting as binding sites for proteins e.g. Shc, Grb2, Src, PI3K,  SHP1 and SHP2.  This couples the ErbB receptor to downstream signaling pathways e.g. MAPK and the Akt pathway, resulting in the activation of target genes within the nucleus, which determine biological responses, such as proliferation or differentiation. Deregulated EGFR signaling, caused by overexpression of the receptor or an enhanced ligand production, is frequent in many tumor types. Thus, there is a great interest in generation of specific inhibitors. Gefitinib (Iressa) is an orally available ATP competitive EGFR-inhibitor which had demonstrated significant efficacy in non-small cell lung cancer.
