The QuIP “PD-L1 Portal” was developed and launched in 2019. Prof. Korinna Jöhrens from the University Hospital Dresden was and still is in charge. Starting with the NSCLC subpage, the portal has since been regularly expanded to include new entities. In 2020, the entities urothelial carcinoma and HNSCC were added. TNBC followed in 2021. Esophageal, gastric carcinoma and cervical carcinoma were added in 2022.
Changes in the approval situation by the EMA are summarised by QuIP and entered in the overview table. The results of the EQA schemes are presented on the entity pages and continuously updated.
