First Patient Dosed in Phase 3 Trial Testing Tyvyt as First-line Therapy for Esophageal Cancer

First Esophageal Cancer patient is dosed in Phase 3 clinical trial using immune checkpoint inhibitor Tyvyt (sintilimab injection), in combination with the chemotherapies Taxol (paclitaxel) and Platinol (cisplatin).
