Tumor growth inhibition can be achieved by inhibiting angiogenesis, which has been a field of great concern in recent years. Important targets to inhibit angiogenesis include vascular endothelial growth factor receptor (VEGFR) and its homologous tyrosine kinase receptor. Anti-angiogenic therapy based on inhibition of VEGFR-2 is an effective clinical treatment strategy. The research progress of VEGFR-2 inhibitors is reviewed in this paper from the aspects of drug development and chemical synthesis.

Keywords: Tumor, anti-angiogenic agents, tyrosine kinase, VEGFR-2 inhibitor, approved drugs, synthesis.
