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, announced today that the first patient was dosed in a global Phase 2 clinical trial of tislelizumab, an investigational anti-PD-1 antibody, in patients with relapsed or refractory mature T- and natural killer (NK)-cell lymphomas. Tislelizumab is also being studied in global Phase 3 trials in solid tumors, including non-small cell lung cancer, hepatocellular carcinoma, and esophageal squamous cell carcinoma, and two pivotal Phase 2 trials in China in relapsed/refractory classical Hodgkin lymphoma and urothelial cancer.

As quoted in the press release:

“We are pleased to be enrolling patients in our first global Phase 2 study in hematology of tislelizumab, for which we maintain global development and commercial rights,” commented John V. Oyler, Founder, Chief Executive Officer, and Chairman of BeiGene.

“We believe that patients with relapsed or refractory mature T-cell and NK-cell lymphomas represent a significant unmet need. There are no currently approved treatments for the majority of mature T-cell lymphomas, in particular extranodal NK/T-cell lymphomas.  We believe that these virally-associated diseases represent logical targets for checkpoint inhibition and we are excited to evaluate tislelizumab as a potential treatment option for these patients,” commented Jane Huang, M.D., Chief Medical Officer, Hematology, at BeiGene.
