No, Normal gfr and creatinine.
This test is done to detect mutations in the egfr gene in cancer tissue. If it is suspected that you have nsclc or non-small cell lung cancer, this test and its results can help with treatment. In traditional cells, the binding of epidermic protein to its receptor on the cell surface is a crucial signal that promotes cell proliferation. Treatment that targets egfr could be a valuable molecular approach in cancer treatment.
