Brief Summary:
Apatinib is a tyrosin-inhibitor agent targeting at vascular endothelial growth factor receptor (VEGFR), so it can inhibit tumor angiogenesis. This phase I study aims to determine the drug's toxicity and to find a dose level to be used in a phase II study in solid tumor patients.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Tumor Drug: apatinib Phase 1

Detailed Description:
Apatinib is a tyrosin-inhibitor agent targeting at VEGFR (vasoendothelial growth factor receptor) to inhibit tumor angiogenesis. The anti-angiogenesis effect of apatinib has been viewed in preclinical tests (see protocol). This phase I clinical study is going to evaluate its toxicity and to find an appropriate dose level to be used in a phase II study in heavily treated solid tumor patients.
