Shi and D. W. Siemann and 12 month survival rates were 54 and 29%, respectively. Common grade 3/4 toxicities included dyspnea (21%), hypertension (23%), and proteinuria (10%). Two cases of grade 5 hemoptysis were reported, as well as one case each of tracheoesophageal fistula, decreased cardiac ejection fraction, cerebral ischemia, and reversible posterior leukoencephalopathy.

Strategies include the use of (i) specific VEGF antibodies to neutralize circulating VEGF, (ii) antisense oligonucleotides or RNA to disrupt VEGF expression and (iii) VEGF-receptor antibodies, or receptor associated tyrosine kinase inhibitors, to block VEGF signaling (Kim et al.
