BeiGene Regains Full Rights for Tevimbra® (tislelizumab) from Novartis

Sep 19, 2023

BeiGene announced it has regained worldwide rights to develop, manufacture, and commercialise Tevimbra® (tislelizumab) from Novartis, following a mutual agreement between the parties to terminate their previous collaboration and licence agreement entered into in January 2021.  BeiGene now has complete global rights to Tevimbra® without having to pay royalties to Novartis and will supply Novartis with Tevimbra® for its clinical trials.  Beigene stated that Novartis will assist BeiGene to ensure the smooth development and commercialisation of Tevimbra®, including manufacture, regulatory, safety, and clinical facets.

On 21 July 2023, BeiGene received a positive CHMP opinion for tislelizumab as monotherapy for the treatment of adult patients with unresectable, locally advanced or metastatic esophageal squamous cell carcinoma after prior platinum-based chemotherapy.
