Roche (RHHBY.PK) said a Phase III IMpower110 study evaluating Tecentriq as a first-line monotherapy compared with cisplatin or carboplatin and pemetrexed or gemcitabine in advanced non-squamous and squamous non-small cell lung cancer met its primary endpoint in an interim analysis showing that Tecentriq monotherapy demonstrated a statistically significant overall survival. Roche said it will now submit the data to global health authorities, including the FDA and EMA.
