• 贝伐珠单抗联合阿替利珠单抗治疗晚期肝细胞癌 • 阿替利珠单抗联合贝伐珠单抗——肝癌治疗的里程碑 • 肝细胞癌






在一项全球性、开放标签、3期试验中,我们以2∶1的比例将既往未接受过全身性治疗的不可切除的肝细胞癌患者随机分组,分别接受阿替利珠单抗+贝伐珠单抗治疗或索拉非尼治疗,直至发生无法接受的毒性作用或者临床获益丧失。联合主要终点是意向治疗人群的总生存期和无进展生存期,由独立的审核机构根据《实体瘤疗效评价标准》(Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors)1.1版(RECIST 1.1)评估。



意向治疗人群包括阿替利珠单抗-贝伐珠单抗组336例患者和索拉非尼组165例患者。在主要分析时(2019年8月29日),阿替利珠单抗-贝伐珠单抗组与索拉非尼组相比的死亡的风险比为0.58(95%置信区间[CI],0.42~0.79;P<0.001)。在阿替利珠单抗-贝伐珠单抗组和索拉非尼组中,12个月时的总生存率分别为67.2%(95% CI,61.3~73.1)和54.6%(95% CI,45.2~64.0)。两组的中位无进展生存期分别为6.8个月(95% CI,5.7~8.3)和4.3个月(95% CI,4.0~5.6)(疾病进展或死亡的风险比,0.59;95% CI,0.47~0.76;P<0.001)。在接受了至少1剂阿替利珠单抗-贝伐珠单抗治疗的329例患者和接受了至少1剂索拉非尼治疗的156例患者中,分别有56.5%和55.1%发生了3级或4级不良事件。阿替利珠单抗-贝伐珠单抗组15.2%的患者发生了3级或4级高血压。但其他高级别毒性作用罕见。
