Brief Summary:
In order to search for effective and low toxicity anti-tumor angiogenesis drugs, jiangsu hengrui pharmaceutical co., ltd. developed the high-efficiency VEGFR2 tyrosine kinase inhibitor apatinib. This drug is mainly used to treat malignant tumors by inhibiting VEGFR2 to play an anti-angiogenic role. Both in vivo and in vitro experiments have shown that apatinib has good tumor growth inhibition activity for lung cancer. This study aims to further confirm the effectiveness and safety of apatinib third-line treatment for patients with advanced lung squamous cell carcinoma.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Lung Squamous Cell Carcinoma Drug: Apatinib Phase 4

Detailed Description:
Apatinib, 250mg, once a day (qd), take it half an hour after meal (the time for taking the medicine should be the same as possible), and take it with warm water. 28 days is a drug delivery cycle.According to the patient's condition, a single drug was selected for 6 cycles of chemotherapy in gemcitabine, yew and ruibin, changchun. After the chemotherapy, the single drug apatinib was maintained.Adverse reactions should be closely monitored during the use of apatinib and adjusted as needed to enable patients to tolerate treatment. The adverse reactions caused by apatinib can be treated by symptomatic treatment, drug withdrawal and dose adjustment. In clinical studies, dose adjustment usually occurs in the second and third cycles (28 days is one cycle). In case of 3/4 grade adverse reactions, the drug can be suspended until the toxic and side effects are completely recovered. Exit the study if 3/4 level of adverse reactions occur again after resumption of medication.
