PD-L1 Testing Algorithm

Programmed death-ligand 1 (PD-L1) is an immune-related biomarker that can be expressed on the surface of many tissue types, including tumor cells. For certain types and stages of cancer, testing for PD-L1 expression may aid in prediction of response to treatment with PD-L1 inhibitors such as atezolizumab (TECENTRIQ), durvalumab (IMFINZI), nivolumab (OPDIVO), and pembrolizumab (KEYTRUDA). Selection of the appropriate test depends on the malignancy and the drug being considered.
