    • US nod for Opdivo in pre-treated small cell lung cancer

      US regulators have further expanded the scope of Bristol Myers Squibb’s Opdivo, approving its use for a previously treated small cell lung cancer.
      The immunotherapy is now the first and only immuno-oncology treatment option for patients with metastatic small cell lung cancer (SCLC) whose cancer has progressed after platinum-based chemotherapy and at least one other line of therapy.
