Phase III study shows promising results on Genentech TECENTRIQ (Atezolizumab)

31 août 2016

Genentech, a member of the Roche Group, today announced positive results for TECENTRIQ from the Phase III study, OAK. The study met its co-primary endpoints and showed a statistically significant and clinically meaningful improvement in overall survival (OS) compared with docetaxel chemotherapy in people with locally advanced or metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) whose disease progressed on or after treatment with platinum-based chemotherapy. Adverse events were consistent with what has been previously observed for TECENTRIQ. Genentech looks forward to presenting full results at an upcoming medical meeting in 2016.

“These results add to the growing body of evidence that supports the role of TECENTRIQ as a potential new treatment for specific types of advanced NSCLC,” said Sandra Horning, M.D., chief medical officer and head of Global Product Development.
