BeiGene Ltd. will partner with Swiss firm Novartis AG to develop, manufacture and commercialize the China-based biotechnology company’s cancer drug tislelizumab.

Thermo Fisher Scientific and Daiichi Sankyo have partnered to co-develop a companion diagnostic device for patients who have non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). 

A preliminary analysis of late-stage trial data showed that BeiGene’s investigational checkpoint inhibitor tislelizumab is hitting the mark as a potential first-line treatment in patients with non-squamous non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).
