Two weeks after AstraZeneca announced the company was withdrawing the use of Imfinzi as a treatment for bladder cancer in the United States, Swiss pharma giant Roche followed suit with the checkpoint inhibitor Tecentriq (atezolizumab).

Merck announced on March 1 the voluntary withdrawal of the U.S. indication for Keytruda (pembrolizumab) for the treatment of patients with metastatic small cell lung cancer (SCLC) with disease progression on or after platinum-based chemotherapy and at least one other prior line of therapy.

AstraZeneca will voluntarily withdraw the use of the company’s Imfinzi to treat advanced bladder cancer in the United States after the cancer drug failed to meet post-approval requirements, the Anglo-Swedish drugmaker said.
