Envafolimab, a novel, single-domain antibody against PD-L1, is the first subcutaneous injected PD-(L)1 inhibitor to be studied in registration trials.

In addition to the registration trial in MSI-H/dMMR advanced solid tumors in China, envafolimab is being studied in two other registration trials. One of them is a randomized Phase 3 trial in biliary tract cancer in China being conducted by 3D Medicines and Alphamab.

The company said there’s a planned enrollment for 160 patients, with 80 patients enrolled into cohort A of treatment with single agent envafolimab and 80 patients enrolled in cohort B of treatment with envafolimab and Yervoy.
