Brief Summary:

The purpose of this study is to observe and preliminary explore the efficacy and safety of combination of Apatinib and SHR-1210 regimen in treating advanced hepatocellular carcinoma or gastric cancer.

Apatinib is a small-molecule vascular endothelial growth factors receptor (VEGFR) tyrosine kinase inhibitor, similar to vatalanib (PTK787), but with a binding affinity 10 times that of vatalanib or sorafenib.

SHR-1210 is a humanized anti-PD-1 monoclonal antibody.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Gastric Cancer Hepatocellular Carcinoma Drug: apatinib Drug: SHR-1210 Phase 1 Phase 2

Detailed Description:

Patients will received apatinib orally every day and SHR-1210 200mg (3mg/kg for underweight patients) iv every 2 weeks. The efficacy and safety will be observed.

The dose escalation phase has completed for apatinib from 125mg, 250mg to 500mg. The dose of 250mg showed best tolerance and efficacy especially in hepatocellular carcinoma. Thus, for hepatocellular carcinoma patients, apatinib 250mg orally every day was chosed for the dose extension phase. In gastric cancer, the dose of 250mg also showed good tolerance but mild efficacy. Thus, for gastric cancer patients, the dose of 375mg daily for apatinib would be explored and then the investigators will decide the best dosage for these patients.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: apatinib and SHR-1210
Every patients will received apatinib orally every day and SHR-1210 200mg (3mg/kg for underweight patients) iv every 2 weeks until disease progression or intolerance of side effects.
Drug: apatinib
Apatinib was administered 250mg or 375mg orally daily. For gastric cancer patients, the dose would be 250mg or 375mg daily. For hepatocellular carcinoma patients, the dose would be 250mg daily.

Drug: SHR-1210
SHR-1210 was administered 200mg (3mg/kg for underweight patients) iv every 2 weeks.
