Abstract Text


  • Case insensitive filtering will display rows where any text in any cell matches the filter term
  • Simple literal full or partial string matches
  • Separate multiple filter terms with a spaces, order doesn't matter (a b c and c b a are equivalent )
  • Filtering will only apply to rows that are already loaded on the page, filtering has no impact on query parameters
  • Use quotes to match a longer phrase which contains spaces "mtor c1483f"


  • Generally, the default sort order for tables is set to be first column ascending, however, specific tables may set a different default sort order.
  • Click on any column header arrows to sort by that column
  • Hold down the Shift key and click multiple columns to sort by more than one column, be sure to set ascending or descending order for a given column, before moving on to the next column.

Avelumab Bavencio MSB0010718C Immune Checkpoint Inhibitor 98 PD-L1/PD-1 antibody 69 Bavencio (avelumab) is a monoclonal antibody binds to human immunosuppressive ligand programmed death-ligand 1 (PD-L1, CD274) and blocks protein signaling, resulting in immune regulation and antitumor immunity (PMID: 26014098). Bavencio (avelumab) is FDA-approved for use in adult and pediatric patients of 12 years or older with metastatic Merkel cell carcinoma, as maintenance therapy in locally advanced or metastatic urothelial carcinoma (UC), in locally advanced or metastatic UC that progressed following chemotherapy, and in combination with axitinib as first-line therapy in advanced renal cell carcinoma (
