Brief Summary:
This is a Phase 3, randomized, open-label, multicenter, global study designed to compare the efficacy and safety of tislelizumab versus sorafenib as a first-line systemic treatment in participants with unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma. This study also includes a substudy investigating the safety, tolerability, PK, and preliminary efficacy in HCC in Japanese participants. In Japan, preliminary safety and tolerability will be evaluated (Safety Run-In Substudy) before Japanese participants are recruited in this Phase 3 study.
