Brief Summary:
This is an single arm, open-label, phase II trial to evaluate safety and efficacy of using the combination of Camrelizumab with apatinib as second-line therapy for advanced PDAC.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Pancreatic Cancer Drug: Camrelizumab Drug: Apatinib Phase 2

Detailed Description:

PD-1 antibody Camrelizumab is a humanized monoclonal antibody, and the heavy chain is immunoglobulin G4 (IgG4), the light chain is immunoglobulin κ (IgK). Camrelizumab specifically binds to PD-1 and blocks the interaction of PD-1 with its ligand (PD-L1), allowing T cells to recover against tumor immune responses.

Response rate, progression-free survival, overall survival, duration of response,disease control rate, drugs related side effects were recorded and analyzed, to assess the combination treatment could or couldn't benefit the patients with advanced pancreatic cancer.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Camrelizumab + Apatinib
Participants receive Camrelizumab 200mg intravenously every 2 weeks and apatinib 250mg orally once daily until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity
Drug: Camrelizumab
200mg, intravenous infusion for 30 minutes (including the time of the tube, the overall infusion time is not shorter than 20 minutes, no longer than 60 minutes), once every 2 weeks.
Other Name: SHR-1210

Drug: Apatinib
250 mg, orally once a day. Take about half an hour after a meal with warm water.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. ORR [ Time Frame: Through study completion, an average of 2 years. ]
    ORR is defined as the percentage of participants in the analysis population who have a Complete Response (CR: Disappearance of all target lesions) or a Partial Response (PR: ≥30% decrease in the sum of diameters of target lesions) per Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) Version 1.1

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. PFS [ Time Frame: Through study completion, an average of 2 years. ]
    Progression-free survival is defined as the duration from date of enrollment to the first occurrence of progression of disease or death from any cause

  2. OS [ Time Frame: Through study completion, an average of 2 years. ]
    Overall survival is defined as the duration from date of enrollment to the date of death from any cause.

  3. DoR [ Time Frame: Through study completion, an average of 2 years. ]
    DOR is defined as the time from first documented evidence of CR or PR until disease progression or death due to any cause, whichever occurs first.

  4. DCR [ Time Frame: Through study completion, an average of 2 years. ]
    DCR is defined as the percentage of participants in the analysis population who have a CR, PR or stable disease (SD) per RECIST 1.1.

  5. Incidence of Adverse Events (AEs) in the treatment of Camrelizumab in combination with apatinib [ Time Frame: Through study completion, an average of 2 years. ]
    Number of participants with adverse events occurring up to 30 days after the last administration are evaluated and graded according to the National Cancer Institute Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events, version 5.0
