Brief Title  ICMJE A Pilot Study of NK Cell Combined With PD-1 Antibody as Second Line Therapy for Advanced Driver Mutation Negative Non-small Cell Lung Cancer
Official Title  ICMJE A Pilot Study of NK Cell Combined With PD-1 Antibody as Second Line Therapy for Advanced Driver Mutation Negative Non-small Cell Lung Cancer
Brief Summary PD-1 antibody has been approved as second line therapy for driven mutation negative non-small cell lung cancer, but overall response rate is only between 15-20%. Basic study found NK cell can enhance anti-tumor ability of PD-L1 antibody. This study evaluates the efficacy and safety of NK cell combined with PD-1 antibody for advanced driven mutation negative non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) as second-line therapy.
Detailed Description The incidence of non-small cell lung cancer is high, and most patients are in advanced stage at the time of diagnosis, and the overall prognosis is poor. Currently, patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer are treated individually according to the molecular and histological features of the tumor. For patients with negative driver mutation in EGFR, ALK, ROS1, BRAF and other driving genes, platinum-based dual chemotherapy combined with PD-1/PD-L1 monoclonal antibody is recommended for first-line treatment. In patients who have not used PD-1/PD-L1 antibody in first-line therapy, the second-line treatment regimen is the first choice for the recommended single-agent PD1/PD-L1 antibody. However, the current efficacy of PD-1/PD-L1 antibody for second-line treatment of advanced non-small cell lung cancer is limited, only between 15-20%. NK cells secrete IFN to promote the expression of PD-L1 in tumor cells and enhance the role of PD-1 inhibitors. At the same time, PD-1 antibodies can bind to NK cell surface PD-1, prevent NK cell depletion, and enhance NK cell anti-tumor. Therefore, the application of NK cells combined with PD-1 antibody in the treatment of patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer may achieve better results.
Study Type  ICMJE Interventional
Study Phase  ICMJE Phase 2
Study Design  ICMJE Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Condition  ICMJE Non-small Cell Lung Cancer
Intervention  ICMJE Combination Product: NK cell and PD-1 antibody
Each patient enrolled the study will received both NK cell and PD-1 antibody.
Study Arms  ICMJE Experimental: NK cell combined with PD-L1 antibody

Autologous peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) are collected by apheresis on D0, then induced into NK cells and infused into the patients 14 days later (D14) as the initial transfusion. There are 3 consecutive transfusion days (D14-D16), total NK cells infused at least 3×10^9 .

200mg PD-L1 antibody(Sintilimab Injection) will be given on D14, 1 hour after NK cells infusion.

NK cells and PD-L1 antibody will be infused every 21 days until disease progression or unacceptable adverse events.

Intervention: Combination Product: NK cell and PD-1 antibody
