BeiGene (NASDAQ:BGNE), a commercial-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on developing and commercializing innovative molecularly targeted and immuno-oncology drugs for the treatment of cancer, today announced that the first patient was dosed in a global Phase 2 clinical trial of tislelizumab, an investigational anti-PD-1 antibody, in patients with previously treated advanced hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC or liver cancer).

As quoted in the press release:

“We have made great progress in the development of tislelizumab with three global Phase 3 trials now enrolling patients. Along with our partner, Celgene, we are encouraged by this progress and excited for the development opportunity of tislelizumab globally,” commented John V. Oyler, Founder, Chief Executive Officer, and Chairman of BeiGene.

“This potentially registration-enabling trial of tislelizumab is expected to help us further understand its safety and efficacy with respect to the line of treatment in which it is administered to patients with advanced liver cancer. For these patients, as well as for patients in the concurrent front-line Phase 3 study of tislelizumab as compared to sorafenib, we are hopeful that tislelizumab will provide a new treatment option for a patient population with significant unmet needs,” commented Amy Peterson, M.D., Chief Medical Officer for Immuno-Oncology of BeiGene.
