Bristol-Myers Squibb Company (NYSE:BMY) today announced updated results from the Phase 3 CheckMate -238 trial evaluating Opdivo (nivolumab)versus Yervoy (ipilimumab)in patients with stage IIIB/C or stage IV melanoma who are at high risk of recurrence following complete surgical resection.

As quoted in the press release:

Findings will be presented on Monday, June 4 from 8:24-8:36 AM CDT during the Melanoma/Skin Cancers session at the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting 2018 in Chicago (Abstract #9502).

“The broader use of Immuno-Oncology agents has changed the cancer treatment landscape and, with advances in research, we have been able to extend the use of these agents to adjuvant therapy in melanoma in order to help prevent disease recurrence,” noted Jeffrey S. Weber, M.D., Ph.D., principal investigator of CheckMate -238. “Results from the study’s 24-month follow-up, the longest follow-up of any PD-1 inhibitor in the adjuvant setting, continue to strongly support the benefit of nivolumab across multiple stages of melanoma and BRAF mutation status.”
