Lung carcinoma is the leading cause of death by cancer in the world. Nowadays, most patients will experience disease progression during or after first-line chemotherapy demonstrating the need for new, effective second-line treatments. The only approved second-line therapies for patients without targetable oncogenic drivers are docetaxel, gemcitabine, pemetrexed, and erlotinib and for patients with target-specific oncogenes afatinib, osimertinib, crizotinib, alectinib, and ceritinib. In recent years, evidence on the role of antiangiogenic agents have been established as important and effective therapeutic targets in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC)...

Non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients after first-line therapy ultimately suffer progression. At this time, many patients still have a good performance status and can be considered for further active treatment. Two chemotherapeutic agents, docetaxel and pemetrexed (only in non-squamous histology), and the biological drug anti-epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) erlotinib, were approved for clinical use in the second-line treatment of NSCLC patients. In the last few years further new second-line therapies have become available in the clinical practice...

Docetaxel, pemetrexed and epidermal growth factor receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitors (gefitinib and erlotinib) are recommended second-line therapy for advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients with disease progression. Although erlotinib is the only recommended third-line therapy, several drugs are being used in the clinic. Recent studies have focused on combining targeted agents with approved therapies, including broad-spectrum multikinase inhibitors targeting multiple ErbB Family receptors and multitargeted anti-angiogenic agents targeting the vascular endothelial growth factor receptor, platelet-derived growth factor receptor and fibroblast growth factor receptor pathways...
