Tislelizumab is a Monoclonal Antibody owned by BeiGene, and is involved in 213 clinical trials, of which 17 were completed, 124 are ongoing, and 72 are planned.

Tislelizumab acts by antagonizing PD-1 for cancer. PD-1 plays an important role in immune modulation of tumor progression by regulating the key inhibitory signaling in the T-cells when engaged by its ligands. The PD-1 receptor is expressed on the surface of activated T cells on the surface of antigen-presenting cells (PD-L1 and PD-L2). The MAb inhibits the interaction of PD-1 receptor with PD-L1. This further stimulates the immune system and enhances T cells ability to lyse tumor cells.

The revenue for Tislelizumab is expected to reach a total of $11.8bn through 2038. This change impacts the valuation of this asset and is an important factor to understand the current value of the drug in a clinical process. View the complete picture with the Tislelizumab NPV Report.

Tislelizumab was originated by BeiGene (Beijing) and is currently owned by BeiGene. Novartis is the other company associated in development or marketing of Tislelizumab.

Tislelizumab Overview

Tislelizumab (Baizean) is a humanized monoclonal antibody that belongs to a class of immuno-oncology agents. It is formulated as powder for solution for intravenous route of administration. Baizean is used for the treatment of patients with classical Hodgkin’s lymphoma (cHL) who have received at least two prior therapies and treatment for patients with locally advanced or metastatic urothelial carcinoma (UC). It is also indicated as a second- or third-line treatment for patients with locally advanced or metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Baizean is indicated for the treatment of adult patients with advanced unresectable or metastatic microsatellite instability-high (MSI-H) or mismatch repair deficient (dMMR) solid tumors, including patients with advanced colorectal cancer (CRC) who had been treated with fluoropyrimidine, oxaliplatin and irinotecan and other advanced solid tumors who develop disease progression after prior treatment and have no satisfactory alternative treatment options. Baizean is indicated as a treatment for patients with locally advanced or metastatic esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) who have disease progression or are intolerant to first-line standard chemotherapy. Tislelizumab, in combination with chemotherapy as a first-line treatment for patients with recurrent or metastatic nasopharyngeal cancer (NPC). It is aslo indicated to treat cancers associated with homologous-recombination deficient (HRD).

Tislelizumab is under development for the treatment of locally advanced rectal cancer, hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), acute myelocytic leukemia, relapsed and refractory acute myeloid leukemia, high-risk myelodysplastic syndromes, primary mediastinal large B-cell lymphoma, triple negative breast cancer (TNBC), gallbladder cancer, pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma, locally advanced or metastatic urothelial carcinoma, non-small cell lung cancer, esophageal squamous cell carcinoma, melanoma, metastatic esophageal, HER2 positive breast cancer, gastric, or gastroesophageal junction carcinoma (as a first line therapy), squamous non-small cell lung cancer, advanced solid tumors such as triple negative breast cancer, ovarian cancer, colorectal cancer, cervical cancer, pancreatic cancer, gastric cancer, hepatocellular carcinoma, non-squamous non-small cell lung cancer, sarcomas, endometrial cancer, cholangiocarcinoma, brain metastasis, chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), follicular lymphoma, aggressive lymphoma, including diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL), renal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma, adrenocorticoid carcinoma, thyroid cancer, metastatic esophageal squamous cell carcinoma, urothelial carcinoma, Merkel cell carcinoma, mesothelioma, adenocarcinoma of mandible, undifferentiated adenocarcinoma from teratoma, blood borne cancer, metastatic hormone refractory (castration resistant, androgen-independent) prostate cancer, small-cell lung cancer, peritoneal cancer, fallopian tube cancer, muscle invasive bladder cancer (MIBC), metastatic adenocarcinoma of the pancreas, non-small cell lung cancer, T-cell lymphomas such as angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma, peripheral T-cell lymphoma-NOS, anaplastic T-cell lymphoma, Extranodal NK/T-cell lymphoma, diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL), relapsed or refractory classical Hodgkin lymphoma (cHL), mycosis fungoides, gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST), mantle cell lymphoma, marginal zone B cell lymphoma, adenoid cystic carcinoma, nasopharyngeal cancer, sezary syndrome, renal pelvis cancer, ureter cancer, bladder cancer, nasopharyngeal cancer, oral cavity cancer or urethral cancer. It is administered by intravenous drip route. The drug candidate is a highly selective and potent, humanized anti-PD-1 monoclonal antibody. It was also under treatment for the treatment of duodenal cancer, anal squamous cell cancer, glioblastoma multiforme, Waldenstrom macroglobulinemia.

GlobalData, the leading provider of industry intelligence, provided the underlying data, research, and analysis used to produce this article.

To create this model, GlobalData takes into account factors including patent law, known and projected regulatory approval processes, cash flows, potential applicable patients, drug margins, company expenses, and pricing estimates. Combining these data points with GlobalData’s world class analysis creates high value models that companies can use to help in evaluation processes for each drug or company.

The rNPV method integrates the probability of a drug reaching a clinical stage into the cash flow at that time, which provides a more accurate rNPV, as it considers the probability that the drug never makes it through the clinical pathway to commercialization. GlobalData’s rNPV model uses proprietary likelihood of approval (LoA)and phase transition success rate(PTSR) data for the indication in the highest development stage, which can be found on GlobalData’s Pharmaceutical Intelligence Center.
