Name: recombinant human endostatin Type: Drug
Overall Status
Malignant pleural effusion (MPE) is a common complication of advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Bevacizumab, a humanized monoclonal antibody against vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), has been shown to be efficient in suppressing the accumulation of pleural fluid. The other widely used treatment for MPE is recombinant human endostatin.
Detailed Description
We designed this clinical trial to determine the efficacy and Safety of intrapleural Bevacizumab versus recombinant human endostatin as a treatment for malignant pleural effusions (MPE) in patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).
