      Trial Summary

      This was a Phase II, open-label, prospective, multicenter study designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of single-agent atezolizumab as a first-line therapy in participants with locally advanced or metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). In addition, the primary biomarker objective was to measure blood tumor mutational burden (bTMB) and evaluate whether it can predict for improved clinical outcome with atezolizumab.
