Oncogenes have been traditionally viewed as molecular drivers for tumor growth and survival. Recent evidence indicates that oncogenes may facilitate the escape of malignant cells from immune recognition and elimination. In this article, we discuss the implications of the overexpression of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) family members on immune escape of tumors and immunotherapy.
