Tecentriq Injection to Overpower Ability of Cells to Outgrow in Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer

Release Date: 27-Nov-2020

The injection (Tecentriq) available for the treatment of small cell lung cancer is estimated to be safe as well as effective in the patients as per the result that has been posted by the group of researchers involved in the respective study. Four out of 30 patients that were enrolled in the respective clinical research study and who received treatment with neoadjuvant PD-L1 inhibitor experienced MPR, which is the end point for the overall survival of the neoadjuvant chemotherapy. The overall study that was conducted was considered to be safe and devoid of any side effects.


It was observed by the researchers that the enrolled patients having more than 50% PD-L1 expression had greatest degree of the tumor pathological response. Also, the study was focused towards conducting flow cytometry for finding the relationship between PD-L1 and TIGIT expression on lymphocytes. The drug compound that was selected for the study was administered at a dose of 1200 mg. Some of the primary aim of the researchers towards the respective clinical trial was to evaluate the safety profile of the drug as well as tolerance rate of the drug in the patients. Secondary aims of the researchers were to measure response rates, overall and disease-free survival, pathological complete response, pathological findings and immune response.


Some of the common mutations that were observed in the enrolled patients were TP53 in 13 patients, followed by KRAS in 8, EGFR in 3, BRAF in 2, and PI3KCA, STK11, ESR1, and WT in 1 each. Although the study is at very initial stage of clinical trial but the clinical outcome related with the study is estimated to completely shift the entire cancer therapeutics market towards the use of respective drug as a standard-of-care.
