ABSTRACT

This study aimed to explore the clinical performance of anlotinib in combination with docetaxel in treating advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). One hundred advanced NSCLC patients admitted to our hospital from January 2019 to December 2022 were retrospectively chosen to be the study objects, and separated into observation group (OG, n=50) and control group (CG, n=50) based on the different drugs used. The CG was given docetaxel injection. The OG was treated with anlotinib hydrochloride capsule combined with docetaxel injection. The clinical effective rate, levels of serum tumor markers, quality of life and occurrence of adverse reactions in both groups were compared. The total clinical effective rate in the OG presented elevated relative to the CG (P<0.01). After treatment, CEA, CA125, SCC and CYFRA21-1 levels in both groups were decreased in both groups, and those in the OG presented lower relative to the CG (P<0.05). After treatment, KPS score in both groups was increased in both groups and that in the OG presented higher relative to the CG (P<0.05). No difference was seen in the occurrence of adverse reactions between 2 groups (P=0.35). In treating advanced NSCLC patients, anlotinib combined with docetaxel can promote efficacy to a certain extent, effectively regulate the level of serum tumor markers, promote the quality of life of patients, and will not significantly affect clinical safety.
