Bristol-Myers Squibb Co. (BMY) Tuesday said a phase 3 study evaluating its cancer drug Opdivo plus low-dose Yervoy combined with chemotherapy met its primary endpoint of superior overall survival for the first-line treatment of advanced non-small cell lung cancer.

The New York biopharmaceutical company said the study evaluated Opdivo plus low-dose Yervoy given concomitantly with two cycles of chemotherapy versus chemotherapy alone.

Non-small cell lung cancer, or NSCLC, is the most common type of lung cancer, accounting for up to 85% of diagnoses.

Bristol-Myers said it plans to complete a full evaluation of the study results, which it said build on the benefit the combination of Opdivo plus Yervoy has previously shown in other cancers.
