Opdivo’s EU Colorectal Cancer Setback ‘More Than Offset’ By Potential Gains In Combination

Executive Summary

Bristol-Myers Squibb has withdrawn its EU application to extend Opdivo’s use to metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC), following a similar move for liver cancer last year. But the mCRC withdrawal is likely to have limited commercial impact and the company is more interested in pursuing the product’s use in combination treatment for this indication.
