      EGFR TKIs have been approved as the first-line therapy for treating advanced non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). However, treatment failures frequently occurred in NSCLC patients with EGFR-sensitizing mutations. Apatinib, a novel small molecule TKI targeted VEGFR2, recommended as third-line treatment for metastatic gastric cancer patients. This retrospective study tried to investigate the efficacy and safety of low dose Apatinib combined with original targeted drugs in treating advanced NSCLC after first-generation EGFR-TKIs treatment failure and trying to explore the underlying mechanisms.

      From March 2016 to November 2016, 11 patients of advanced NSCLC acquired resistance for Erlotinib, gefitinib and Icotinib treated with original targeted drugs plus Apatinib(250 mg, once daily), and CT scan every 4 weeks. Meanwhile observe drug-related adverse events.

      In 11 patients, there were 10 patients available for efficacy and safety evaluation. 2 of 10 patients were progress disease in 12 weeks, 8 of 10 patients were stable disease and still in treatment. The disease control rate (DCR) was 80%. The rate of PFS at 12 weeks was 72.73%. The most frequent treatment-related adverse events were fatigue (20%, 2/10), rash (20%, 2/10), poor appetite (20%, 2/10), respectively. Severe AEs included grade 3 proteinuria (10%, 1/10).

      Low dose Apatinib combined with original targeted drugs is efficacious in treating patients with advanced NSCLC who failed to first-generation EGFR-TKIs treatment, with acceptable toxic effects. The mechanism may be related to Apatinib regulate tumor microenvironment and reverses multidrug resistance.
