Excerpt from the Press Release:
SAN DIEGO, March 30, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — 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.
