A phase 1 study that aimed to assess the safety and anti-tumor activity of C-TCR055 injection
in unresectable HCC patients.
This study plans to enroll 9 patients to assess the safety of C-TCR055. Subjects who meet the
eligibility criteria will receive a single dose of C-TCR055 injection, and will be followed
up post treatment for safety monitoring. The follow up period will last 12 months.
