Monoclonal antibodies and tyrosine kinase inhibitors specific for the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) have been shown to enhance the effect of external beam radiation on EGFR-positive tumors. The effect of EGFR signaling abrogation by EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitor on the efficacy of radioimmunotherapy has not been reported previously. This study investigated the effect of EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibition on the efficacy of radioimmunotherapy in a human cancer xenograft model.
