The study is a single-arm, phase II trial. The purpose is to investigate both the efficacy and safety of radiotherapy combined with anti-PD-1 antibody in unresectable biliary tract cancer patients.


The trial will recruit 36 patients, and they will undergo radiotherapy plus anti-PD-1 antibody. Patients will receive conventional intensity-modulated radiotherapy or stereotactic body radiation therapy first for a total dose more than 45Gy. Camrelizumab 200mg intravenously every 3 weeks will be initiated within 7 days after radiotherapy.
