I read the prescribing information & as far as I can tell it does not specify. The trial that they based the rapid approval was based on pts who had not had prior therapy but I don't see a statement about this in the prescribing info.

I'd also note that the prescribing info also states it can be used for pts with any type of cancer which has high tumor mutation burden (TMB 10 or over) who have no other options. It's on p1 of the document, bottom of right hand column. https://www.accessdata.fda.gov/drugsatfda_docs/lab...

Thank you! I just like to gather information about new treatments and trials so I know what to bring to my MO. Abraxane and Tecentriq have been a great treatment for me so far
