Methods: Seventeen malignant ascite patients were treated with oral apatinib (500 mg/d) and abdominal cavity perfusion of 60 mg/m2 cis-platinum (apatinib group), and 12 patients were treated with cis-platinum  (60 mg/m2) only (control group). Twenty-one days was deemed as a cycle for both groups. Short-term treatment effects, quality of life (QOL), and toxicity were evaluated. Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) was used to determine the vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) level in ascites. 
Results: The response rates in apatinib and control groups were 70.6% and 33.3% (P},
