Updated on 3 January 2022


This is an Open-label, Single Arm study to observe the safety and tolerability of B010-A in the treatment of advanced hepatocellular carcinoma.


All subjects participating in this study will receive peripheral blood mononuclear cell collection to produce B010-A injection products after enrollment. Subjects may receive bridging anti-cancer therapy while waiting for the production of B010-A injection. All subjects need to undergo baseline assessment before receiving cell infusion. For all subjects, the baseline assessment includes weight, body surface area, vital signs, physical examination, ECOG score, laboratory examination, coagulation function, etiological examination, 12-lead ECG, echocardiogram, cytokine testing, Tumor marker detection and ICE score, etc. Each subject will receive lymphodepletion prior to B010-A infusion, and dose-limiting toxicity (DLT) assessment will be performed on D28 after the first infusion.

Subjects with a venous access for mononuclear cell collection
Subjects with adequate bone marrow function that allows for lympho-depleting pre-conditioning and without contraindications for the pre-conditioning as assessed by the investigator
Subjects with liver, kidney, respiratory, cardiovascular functions, and corresponding hematological levels as defined below
Alanine aminotransferase (ALT) ≤ 5.0 × ULN, aspartate aminotransferase (AST) ≤ 5.0 × ULN, and total bilirubin ≤ 2.5 × ULN at screening
Requirements for blood coagulation at screening: prothrombin time (PT) prolongation ≤ 4 s, fibrinogen ≥ 1 g/L, activated partial thromboplastin time (APTT) ≤ 1.5 × ULN
Serum creatinine ≤ 1.5 × ULN or endogenous creatinine clearance > 50 mL/min (Cockcroft-Gault formula) at screening
Pulmonary function at screening: finger oxygen saturation ≥ 95% at screening and prior to apheresis
Cardiac function at screening: left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) ≥ 50% as assessed by echocardiography within 1 month
Subjects with white blood cell count ≥ 3.0×109/L and lymphocyte count ≥ 0.5×109/L at screening (except for those receiving bridging chemotherapy), platelet count ≥ 75×109/L, hemoglobin ≥ 90 g/L, and neutrophil count ≥ 1.5×109/L (this criterion should also be met within 24 hours prior to apheresis)
Female subjects of childbearing potential (all women physiologically capable of
becoming pregnant) must have a negative serum pregnancy test both at screening
Subjects with ability to understand and sign the Informed Consent Form
and within 14 days prior to the first dose and are willing to use reliable
contraception methods during the study (within 24 months after the first dose
of cell infusion). For male subjects whose partners are women of childbearing
potential, the subjects should have been surgically sterilized or agree to use
reliable contraception methods during the study as well as for additional 1
year after receiving the last study treatment
