Results Phase III clinical trials show that the immune drug Camrelizumab combined with chemotherapy not only achieved an overall survival of 27.9 months, but also increased the objective response rate (OPR) by up to 60 percent.

“Objective response rate (OPR) means that after treatment, the tumor is reduced by at least 30 percent. After immunotherapy plus chemotherapy, there is a chance that in 60 percent of cases the tumor will achieve objective remission. This is very good data,” explains Zhou Kaikun, director of the oncology department of the Shanghai Pulmonary Hospital.
