Brief Summary:
This is a Phase Ib, open-label,single-arm, clinical study, aiming to investigate the safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetics of ZKAB001 (a fully human monoclonal antibody targeting the Programmed Death - Ligand 1 (PD-L1) membrane receptor ) combined with capecitabine as adjuvant chemotherapy for patients with biliary tract cancers after radical resection.After completing 8 courses of combined treatment ,ZKAB001 was continued to be administered separately once 3 weeks for a total of 16 cycles or 1 year.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Biliary Tract Cancer Drug: ZKAB001 5mg/kg Drug: Capecitabine Phase 1

Detailed Description:
This study includes two phases,the first phase is the dose exploration, 6 subjects were first included at the initial dose to confirm the dose safety. If the toxicity is not tolerated, the dose of the chemotherapeutic agent will be reduced depending on the toxicity(including hematological toxicity and non-hematological toxicity) for further exploration. If it can be tolerated, the recommended dose is determined and expanded on this dose. the second phase is the dose expansion, 4 subjects will be enrolled to further observe the safety and efficacy. The DLT(Dose limited toxicity) observation period is set as the first course of treatment(3 weeks). The end point is that the patient has been taking the drug for 16 cycles or 1 year, or the patient dies or develops intolerable toxicity or confirmed disease recurrence or distant metastasis or withdrawal of informed consent.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Dose limiting toxicity (DLT) [ Time Frame: 21 days after first dose ]
    Adverse events of level 3 or above related to the study drug occurring within 21 days after the first dose as assessed by CTCAE v5.0.

  2. Recommended phase II dose (RP2D) [ Time Frame: 21 days after first dose ]
    DLT occurs in no more than 1/6 subjects, this dose is defined as RP2D.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. AUC(0-t) [ Time Frame: 16 periods or 1 year ]
    Area under curve 0-t

  2. Cmax [ Time Frame: 16 periods or 1 year ]
    Peak concentration

  3. Tmax [ Time Frame: 16 periods or 1 year ]
    Peak time

  4. Disease-free Survival [ Time Frame: up to 24 months ]
    Form date of randominzation until the date of the first tumor recurrence/ometastasis or death of the subject due to any reason

  5. Overall survival (OS) [ Time Frame: up to 24 months ]
    From date of randomization until the date of death from any cause or the date of last follow-up whichever came first

  6. the number of subjects presenting detectable anti drug antibodies (ADAs) [ Time Frame: through study completion,an average of 1 year ]
    To evaluated the number of subjects presenting detectable anti drug antibodies (ADAs)
