Lung cancer is one of the most aggressiveness cancers in the worldwide. It is the most important cause of cancer ́s related death in the United States of America and Europe. Many factors as smoke status, occupational diseases, radon exposure are considered as involved in lung cancer risk. Non small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) account about 85% of all lung cancer subtypes. As occur in others cancer, angiogenesis play main role in NSCLC carcinogenesis steps. It is regulated by complex mechanisms regarding cell signaling toward draw stream regulation PIK3-Akt, Ras-raf-MEK-ERK pathways and cell surface receptors, such as vascular endothelial growth factor receptor (VEGFR) and epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR). Currently, VEGF ligands are considered the main drive of this process comprising six members: VEGF-A, -B, -C, -D, and ?E and placental growth factor (PlGF). VEGF-A is the most important member and it is responsible for physiologic and pathologic mechanisms of angiogenesis. EGFR activation also may influence the VEGFR activity and nowadays acquired an important role in target therapies management. For those reasons, it will be discussed on this topic angionenics mechanisms regarding VEGF and EGFR pathways, highlight the currently angiogenic potential biomarkers, and also focus the clinical implications of this knowledge.
