Angiogenesis is the most critical step in the development and progression of malignant tumors. Anti-tumor angiogenesis has become the most promising new strategy for tumor treatment. Rapidly growing tumor cells secrete a variety of vascular growth factors under hypoxia to stimulate tumor angiogenesis. One of the important growth factors is Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF). Some small molecule compounds that inhibit VEGFR have been used to treat Tumors. In this study, we evaluated the effectiveness and safety of Apatinib Mesylate tablet in the treatment of advanced solid tumors. We found that Apatinib Mesylate tablet can treat advanced solid tumors.
