Drug Information available for: Docetaxel

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: apatinib plus docetaxel
apatinib combine with docetaxel, 4~6 cycles
Drug: Apatinib
apatinib, at a dose of 250 mg daily,Treatment was continued until disease progression.
Other Name: Aitan

Drug: Docetaxel
Docetaxel, at a dose of 75mg/m2 on days 1 and 22, repeat every 4 weeks for 4~6 cycles.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. objective response rate (ORR) [ Time Frame: 6 month ]
    Proportion of patients with reduction in tumor burden of a predefined amount

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. progression free survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: 12 month ]
    The length of time during and after the treatment of a disease, such as cancer, that a patient lives with the disease but it does not get worse.

  2. disease control rate (DCR) [ Time Frame: 6 month ]
    Disease Control Rate (DCR) and Clinical Benefit Rate (CBR) are defined as the percentage of patients with advanced or metastatic cancer who have achieved complete response, partial response and stable disease to a therapeutic intervention in clinical trials of anticancer agents.

  3. 6-month overall survival rate [ Time Frame: 6 month ]
    6-month overall survival rate
