The FDA has granted a priority review designation to a supplemental biologics license application (sBLA) for atezolizumab (Tecentriq) for use in combination with carboplatin and etoposide for the frontline treatment of patients with extensive-stage small cell lung cancer (ES-SCLC).

Atezolizumab has approved FDA indications for non–small cell lung cancer and urothelial carcinoma.
