PRINCETON, N.J. — Bristol Myers Squibb has announced the presentation of data across its portfolio, aimed at addressing solid tumor and hematologic malignancies in 28 types of cancer, at the upcoming American Society of Clinical Oncology 2020 (ASCO20) Virtual Scientific Program, which will take place from May 29 to May 31, 2020.

Presentations will feature clinical and non-clinical studies highlighting the potential role of immunotherapy, including combination approaches, to deliver durable treatment outcomes in multiple hard-to-treat solid tumors. In hematology, presentations will demonstrate the company’s innovative research in multiple myeloma, through both BCMA-targeted CAR T and proof-of-concept CELMoD data, suggesting targeted protein degradation as a potential new treatment approach. In addition, precision treatment approaches will explore how new biomarker insights may aid in the selection of optimal therapies for patients based on disease biology.

Accepted abstracts will be available on the ASCO conference website on Wednesday, May 13 at 5 p.m. EDT and the embargo will lift for all data included in these presentations at that time. Overall, data from more than 50 company-sponsored studies and collaborations will be featured at the meeting:

Solid Tumor

First presentation of results from CheckMate -9LA evaluating Opdivo (nivolumab) plus Yervoy (ipilimumab) with limited chemotherapy, and three-year follow-up data from CheckMate -227 evaluating Opdivo plus Yervoy combination in first-line metastatic non-small cell lung cancer

Treatment-free survival data from analyses of Opdivo plus Yervoy in advanced melanoma and new data in patients with immunotherapy-resistant renal cell carcinoma (RCC)

Analyses of multiple biomarkers associated with Opdivo plus Yervoy or Opdivo in patients with RCC

Cell Therapy

Pivotal trial results from KarMMa study of idecabtagene vicleucel (ide-cel; bb2121), a potential first-in-class BCMA CAR T in multiple myeloma being developed with bluebird bio

Updated data from EVOLVE Phase 1 study of orva-cel (orvacabtagene autoleucel), a fully human BCMA CAR T being developed by Juno Therapeutics, a Bristol-Myers Squibb Company, in heavily pre-treated multiple myeloma patients


First clinical disclosure for CC-92480, a novel CELMoD agent evaluated in combination with dexamethasone in patients with relapsed and refractory multiple myeloma

Multiple analyses from the QUAZAR-001 pivotal Phase 3 study evaluating CC-486 maintenance therapy in acute myeloid leukemia

“This year’s ASCO meeting underscores the science-driven approach of our development program in solid tumor and hematologic malignancies, our dedication to precision medicine, as well as our commitment to helping to deliver durable improvement in patient outcomes through potentially transformative therapies,” said Dr. Samit Hirawat, executive vice president, chief medical officer, global drug development, Bristol Myers Squibb. “With the impact of COVID-19, we are committed to supporting patients with cancer and overcoming challenges that patients, physicians and the research community may face during this time. We look forward to coming together virtually to share important data that continues to advance innovation for patients.”
