Erlotinib is an epidermal growth factor receptor tyrosine-kinase inhibitor. Clinical trials have shown its efficacy in advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). We conducted a large retrospective study based on clinical experience aiming to prove erlotinib’s efficacy and safety in patients with advanced-stage squamous cell NSCLC. Totally 375 patients with advanced-stage(IIIB, IV) squamous cell NSCLC were treated with erlotinib. Erlotinib was continued until disease progression or intolerable toxicity. 1 (0.3%) complete response (CR), 28 (7.5%) partial responses (PR) and 198 (52.8%) stable diseases (SD) were achieved. Overall response rate (ORR) and disease control rate (DCR) were 7.8% and 60.5%, respectively. Median progression-free survival (PFS) was 3.0 months and median overall survival (OS) was 7.6 months. PFS of patients with CR/PR, SD and PD were 7.6, 3.9 and 1.0 months, respectively (P<0.001). OS of patients with CR/PR, SD and PD were 13.3, 10.9 and 3.8 months, respectively (P<0.001). The most common adverse effects were rash and diarrhoea. In conclusion erlotinib is effective and well-tolerated in patients with advanced-stage squamous cell NSCLC.
