afatinib is an approved drug (EMA & FDA (2013))
Compound class: Synthetic organic
Comment: Afatinib is a second-generation, irreversible, covalently-bound EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitor. It potently and selectively inhibits EGFR and Erbb2 [3,5,7]. Although afatinib demonstrates improved activity against the gatekeeper EGFR T790M resistance mutation, it is equally potent against the wild-type receptor, leading to dose-limiting toxicities and a narrow safety window [8]. Third generation, wild-type sparing inhibitors such as nazartinib are in development to circumvent this problem [4].
