Tislelizumab is under clinical development by Novartis and currently in Phase II for Soft Tissue Sarcoma. According to GlobalData, Phase II drugs for Soft Tissue Sarcoma have a 26% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Phase III. GlobalData’s report assesses how Tislelizumab’s drug-specific PTSR and Likelihood of Approval (LoA) scores compare to the indication benchmarks. Buy the report here.

GlobalData tracks drug-specific phase transition and likelihood of approval scores, in addition to indication benchmarks based off 18 years of historical drug development data. Attributes of the drug, company and its clinical trials play a fundamental role in drug-specific PTSR and likelihood of approval.

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 also indicated to treat cancers associated with homologous-recombination deficient (HRD).

It is administered by intravenous drip route. The drug candidate is a highly selective and potent, humanized anti-PD-1 monoclonal antibody.
