Their phase III list is dominated by Roche, which is pulling off a string of blockbuster approvals. Regeneron and Sanofi, perhaps the best partners in biotech, have a clear shot with dupilumab. Lilly, which has begun to rack up badly needed successes in Phase III, is expected to score with abemaciclib (though CDK 4/6 will be competitive).

Not to take anything away from AstraZeneca and durvalumab, its PD-L1 therapy will be the fourth checkpoint drug to the market. The company is lagging leader Bristol-Myers Squibb, Merck, and more recently Roche. That’s cause for more trouble for durvalumab than some analysts are factoring in now.
