6 Recommendations for further research

6.1 The Committee recognised the importance of further clinical trials comparing the effectiveness of the tyrosine kinase inhibitors (afatinib, erlotinib and gefitinib) in EGFR mutation-positive locally advanced or metastatic NSCLC. It acknowledged the relevance of the ongoing study (LUX-Lung 7) which directly compares afatinib and gefitinib in people with EGFR mutation-positive advanced NSCLC and is due to report in 2015.
