The following age-specific requirements apply: Women <50 years of age would be considered post-menopausal if they have been amenorrheic for 12 months or more following cessation of exogenous hormonal treatments and if they have luteinizing hormone and follicle-stimulating hormone levels in the post-menopausal range for the institution or underwent surgical sterilization (bilateral oophorectomy or hysterectomy). Women >=50 years of age would be considered post-menopausal if they have been amenorrheic for 12 months or more following cessation of all exogenous hormonal treatments, had radiation-induced menopause with last menses >1 year ago, had chemotherapy-induced menopause with last menses >1 year ago, or underwent surgical sterilization (bilateral oophorectomy, bilateral salpingectomy or hysterectomy). 7.Patient is willing and able to comply with the protocol for the duration of the study including undergoing treatment and scheduled visits and examinations including follow up. 8.Advanced HCC confirmed histologically or by the typical findings of a hypervascular tumor on computed tomography or angiography 9.(CohortA and CohortB) Refractory or unbearable forsystemic therapies for advanced HCC (including atezolizumab conbined with bevacizumab, sorafenib, lenvatinib) (exclution of expantion cohort) 10.Must not be eligible for locoregional therapy for unresectable HCC. For patients who progressed after locoregional therapy for HCC, locoregional therapy must have been completed >=28 days prior to the baseline scan for the current study. Acceptable locoregional therapy for HCC are Ethanol Infusion Therapy, Radio Wave ablation Therapy, Transcatheter Arterial chemoembolization (TACE), Transcatheter arterial infusion (TAI). Hepatic Arterial Infusion Chemotherapy (HAIC) is not allowed. 11.Patients who have been diagnosed with HCC showing MVI. MVI is defined as a tumor thrombus in the major hepatic and/or portal vein branches (Vp2, Vp3, Vp4, Vv2, and Vv3) identified by imaging studies. 12.Child-Pugh A 13.At least one measurable lesion other than the MVI and feeding nodule based on mRECIST. Must have a life expectancy of at least 12 weeks
Exclude criteria1.Involvement in the planning and/or conduct of the study (applies to both AstraZeneca staff and/or staff at the study site) 2.Participation in another clinical study with an investigational product during the last 4 weeks, unless it is an observational (non-interventional) clinical study or during the follow-up period of an interventional study 3.Any unresolved toxicity NCI CTCAE Grade >=2 from previous anticancer therapy with the exception of alopecia, vitiligo, and the laboratory values defined in the inclusion criteria Patients with Grade >=2 neuropathy will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis after consultation with the Study Physician. Patients with irreversible toxicity not reasonably expected to be exacerbated by treatment with durvalumab or tremelimumab may be included only after consultation with the Study Physician. 4.Radiotherapy treatment to more than 30% of the bone marrow or with a wide field of radiation within 4 weeks of the first dose of study drug 5.Major surgical procedure (as defined by the Investigator) within 28 days prior to the first dose of IP.
