How does GILOTRIF work?

What does GILOTRIF do?



If your doctor has prescribed GILOTRIF, it is because you have been tested and found to have certain types of abnormal epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) gene mutations. Abnormal EGFR gene mutations are also referred to as EGFR mutations or EGFR M+. GILOTRIF works by attaching to these EGFR M+ molecules, and helping to block these cancer-causing signals.
