BAVENCIO® (avelumab) is an immunotherapy—a medicine that may help your immune system fight certain types of cancer

About your immune system and cancer

  • The immune system is a part of your body that fights diseases to keep you healthy
  • One job of your immune system is to remove cells that are becoming cancerous
  • Over time, cancer cells may be able to stop your immune system from attacking them

BAVENCIO may engage both your adaptive and innate immune systems

  • BAVENCIO can cause your immune system to attack normal organs and tissues and can affect the way they work. These problems can sometimes become serious or life-threatening and can lead to death


This is a model of how BAVENCIO works in laboratory settings and may not be reflective of how it works in humans.
