Imfinzi will be the fourth PD-1/L1 inhibitor approved for lung cancer in Europe, but AstraZeneca could carve out a niche by being indicated for sequential use following chemoradiation.
Unlike other indications PD-1/L1 inhibitors are shooting for, Stage III non-small cell lung cancer is an untapped market and AstraZeneca will have the space to itself for a while.
Results from a number of Phase III studies in non-small cell lung cancer for major immuno-oncology players are coming soon, with potential to change the market dynamics.
