The FDA has granted a priority review to a biologics license application (BLA) for the PD-1 inhibitor cemiplimab for the treatment of patients with metastatic cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (CSCC) or patients with locally advanced CSCC who are not eligible for surgery.

Two patients died within 30 days of the final dose, but these were not attributed to cemiplimab.
