Opdivo Alone or Combined with Yervoy Shows Encouraging Response and Survival Rates in Recurrent Small Cell Lung Cancer Patients with High Tumor Mutation Burden, in Exploratory Analysis from Phase 1/2 Study CheckMate -032


Bristol-Myers Squibb Company (NYSE:BMY) today announced data evaluating Opdivo (nivolumab) and Opdivo plus Yervoy (ipilimumab) in previously treated small cell lung cancer (SCLC) patients whose tumors were evaluable for tumor mutation burden (TMB), from the Phase 1/2 CheckMate -032 trial. The primary objective of this trial was objective response rate (ORR) as assessed by a blinded independent central review (BICR), for which results were previously presented; in the pooled intent-to-treat (ITT) population (n=401), the ORR was 11% with Opdivo alone and 22% with the combination. Among the ITT population, 211 (53%) patients had an evaluable TMB result for these analyses and were divided into subgroups of high, medium and low levels of TMB.”
