HUYABIO International (HUYABIO™), the leader in accelerating global development of China's pharmaceutical innovations, today announced that it had entered into a clinical collaboration agreement with Bristol-Myers Squibb Company (NYSE: BMY) to evaluate the combination of HUYABIO's HBI-8000, an epigenetic immunomodifier, and Opdivo ® (nivolumab), a PD-1 blocking antibody. The Phase 3 trial is designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the combination in subjects with unresectable or metastatic melanoma not previously treated with anti-PD-1 therapy.

"This Phase 3 trial follows our open label Phase 2 study which showed impressive clinical results for the combination of Opdivo and HBI-8000 to treat melanoma," said Dr. Mireille Gillings , CEO & Executive Chair of HUYABIO. "HBI-8000 has been shown to enhance the efficacy of Opdivo through one of its mechanisms of action that controls acetylation and nuclear transportation of PD-L1."

HUYABIO will be the sponsor of the trial. Bristol Myers Squibb will provide Opdivo clinical drug supply for the study. Opdivo ® is a registered trademark of Bristol Myers Squibb.

Hungry for Change: Investing in the Plant-based Food Industry

Animal agriculture is one of the top five sources of greenhouse gas emissions, much of which is directly attributable to livestock. It's been estimated by the United Nations, for instance, that the livestock sector represents approximately 14.5 percent of all global greenhouse gas emissions. Given the current international push for sustainability, this is a problem — and people are demanding a solution.

Driven by concerns about health, climate change and animal welfare, consumers are demandingethical and sustainable alternatives to meat, dairy, fish, and poultry. Nearly two-thirds (63 percent) of respondents to a survey on flexitarian diets would swap to plant-based alternatives because they're more ethical.

Unsurprisingly, this demand represents a considerable opportunity for anyone interested in sustainable investing. According to Bloomberg Intelligence, the global plant-based food market is expected to reach a total value of US$162 billion by 2030. A survey from the Food Institute shows that 79 percent of Americans from Generation Z choose meatless options at least once or twice a week.

Results of a pre-specified interim analysis conducted through an independent review committee showed that KarMMa-3 met its primary endpoint of demonstrating a statistically significant improvement in progression-free survival. Treatment with Abecma also showed an improvement in the key secondary endpoint of overall response rate compared to standard regimens. Follow-up for overall survival, a key secondary endpoint, remains ongoing.
