New Product - Bavencio

Avelumab (rch) (Bavencio) is a fully human IgG1 monoclonal antibody directed against programmed death ligand 1 (PD-L1). Avelumab removes the suppressive effects of PD-L1 on cytotoxic CD8+ T-cells, resulting in the restoration of anti-tumour T-cell responses. Bavencio is indicated for the treatment of adults and paediatric patients 12 years and older with metastatic Merkel cell carcinoma. This indication is approved based on tumour response rate, duration of response in a single arm study. Bavencio concentrated solution for intravenous infusion (200 mg/10 mL) is available in a pack size of 1 vial.
