      Have close friend recently diagnosed with NSCLC, put on Tecentriq for 2 infusions over 6 weeks then having lung surgery Dec 13, hoping he responds to make surgery more successful.

      I was enrolled in clinical trial using Tecentriq for 2 infusions then had surgery. The pathology report came back that lymph nodes that had tested positive were negative and the cancerous part of the tumor had shrunk. So it worked very well for me.

      Yes, Stage 3A adenocarcinoma. I am part of a clinical trial using the drug first then surgery. The drs said the immunotherapy got rid of the cancer in the lymph nodes even before surgery.

      Thank you for your responses. My husband was diagnosed with extensive small cell lung cancer in August of 2018. His doctor was thrilled that Tecentriq was finally okayed for small cell just a few months ago. So he is receiving treatments with Carboplatin, Etoposide, and Tecentriq as the initial treatment of extensive-stage small cell lung cancer. Will update after next scan.
