Park and colleagues genotyped cancer tissue for epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutations in patients with complete resection for lung adenocarcinoma who had a recurrence. Lung adenocarcinoma with EGFR gene mutations was associated with a longer disease-free interval than was the wild-type EGFR gene. Additionally, EGFR gene mutation was a prognostic factor for disease-free interval.
