Brief Summary:

Title: Single-center, open clinical study on the efficacy and safety of c-Met/PD-L1 T cell injection in the treatment of primary hepatocellular carcinoma

Stage: Phase I clinical trial

Purpose: To evaluate the efficacy and safety of c-Met/PD-L1 CAR-T cells in patients with primary hepatocellular carcinoma

Object: patients with primary hepatocellular carcinoma

Sample size: 50 cases

Number of centres:1

Study design: CT, MRI, PET and blood biochemical tests were performed before treatment to evaluate the state of HCC. Peripheral blood of the patient was extracted and PBMC was isolated. CAR-T cells were obtained by tranducing PBMC with c-Met/PD-L1 CAR lentivirus, and the proliferation capacity and immune phenotype of the cells were tested. After passing the inspection, the cells were re-injected into the patient three times. The efficacy and safety of c-Met/PD-L1 CAR-T cells was assessed respectively at 4 week, 12 week, 24 week and 48 week after treatment.

Trial product: c-Met/PD-L1 CAR-T cells

Course of treatment: 3 days for a course of treatment, only one course of treatment. A second course is given as appropriate if the treatment is beneficial to the patient.

Arm Intervention/treatment
c-Met/PD-L1 CAR-T cells treating group
Intervention Name:c-Met/PD-L1 CAR-T cell injection dosage form: injection dosage:The backtransfusion dose (recommended dose: 2 * 10^6/kg) was determined by the investigator based on the subject's own/disease condition and in vitro preparation.
Biological: c-Met/PD-L1 CAR-T cell injection
injection content:c-Met/PD-L1 CAR-T cell Infusion way:Steady intravenous drip in 15 to 30 minutes

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The efficacy of c-Met/PD-L1 CAR-T cells in the treatment of HCC [ Time Frame: 6 months after treatment ]
    assessing the efficacy of c-Met/PD-L1 CAR-T cells through overall survival

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. the incidence of treatment-emergent adverse events of c-Met/PD-L1 T cell injection in the treatment of HCC [ Time Frame: 6 months after treatment ]
    the level 3 or level 4 adverse reactions according to CTCAE V4.03 standard

  2. The amplification and persistence of c-Met/PD-L1 CAR-T cell in the subjects varied with time [ Time Frame: 6 months after treatment ]
    The amplification level of c-Met/PD-L1 CAR-T cells varied with time and the duration of anti-c-met/pd-l1 CAR-T cells in the subjects
