This question of the safety of giving Tarceva (erlotinib) along with brain radiation comes up in our clinics.  In general, cancer docs tend to be conservative about giving anti-cancer therapies concurrent with brain radiation unless we have a good sense of its safety.  This video talks about the question and the findings from a series of 40 patients from MD Anderson who provide an answer that can help guide us in the future.
