  • NOTE: Tumor specimens pre- or post-EGFR TKI treatment were analyzed for EGFR copy number by chromogenic in situ hybridization (CISH) as per Materials and Methods. CISH values represent the average of signals for 30 nuclei per specimen examined. Pretreatment to posttreatment changes are indicated by an arrow; if only one value is listed, it was obtained from the posttreatment specimen.
