CHMP Issues Positive Opinion for BeiGene’s TEVIMBRA® (tislelizumab) for NSCLC

Feb 26, 2024

On 26 February 2024, BeiGene announced that the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) of the European Medicines Agency (EMA) has issued a positive opinion recommending the approval of TEVIMBRA® (tislelizumab) for the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). The indications include treatment of squamous, non-squamous and locally advanced / metastatic NSCLC. BeiGene’s Phase 3 clinical trials, enrolling 1,500 patients, showed tislelizumab to be an effective therapy for patients with treatment-naive and treatment-resistant NSCLC. 

On 19 September 2023, BeiGene announced it regained worldwide rights to develop, manufacture, and commercialise Tevimbra® (tislelizumab) from Novartis, following termination of the previous arrangement between the parties.
