The FDA has granted atezolizumab (Tecentriq) a breakthrough therapy designation for use in combination with bevacizumab (Avastin) as a first-line treatment for patients with advanced or metastatic hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC).

The ongoing phase III IMbrave150 study (NCT03434379) is comparing atezolizumab/bevacizumab with sorafenib (Nexavar) in the frontline setting for patients with locally advanced or metastatic HCC.
