To evaluate the safety and anti-HBV efficacy of γδT cells.

Full Title of Study: “”Treatment of HBeAg-positive Chronic Hepatitis B With γδT Cells” Clinical Trial Protocol”

Study Type

  • Study Type: Interventional
  • Study Design
    • Allocation: N/A
    • Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
    • Primary Purpose: Treatment
    • Masking: None (Open Label)
  • Study Primary Completion Date: October 5, 2018

Detailed Description

In this clinical trial, we will thoroughly evaluate the safety of in vitro expanded γδT cells, including allogeneic originated γδT cells, in clinical treatment of active HBV. At the same time, we will carefully and thoroughly examine and evaluate the clinical efficacy of γδT cells against active HBV, including lowering speed of DNA copy number, and the transferring rate of HBeAg from positive to negative.


  • Combination Product: Adoptive transfer of γδT cells
    • Patients are treated via intravenous infusion of in vitro-activated allogeneic γδ Tcells every two weeks, 12 times in total (6 months).

Arms, Groups and Cohorts

  • Experimental: study group

Clinical Trial Outcome Measures

Primary Measures

  • DNA copy number
    • Time Frame: 6 months
    • Whether or not the DNA copy number in patients can be lowered more faster than those do not received T cell treatment in 6 months.
  • Negative conversion rate of HbeAg
    • Time Frame: 6 months
    • We will evaluate whether or not γδT Cells treatment could speed up Negative conversion rate of HbeAg.
