in that to similar the First, just what's I'm intend you of to on trying understand, that base you're CheckMate-XXX? change test was the CheckMate XLA other second, very type not trial, what you confirm done is the much. TMB no been plan, using trial to analysis Thank but in to that CheckMate-XXX? And you trials. perhaps and of there's the primary use can then, statistical that on test

Thomas J. Lynch, Jr.

for interesting about cell I I you about Thank thank to indicates cancer, is and and lung Tom. used you it squamous cancer. what where about learning be is And This much a Umer, more think this When a that was is think your so question. how the TMB it we're disease very just adenocarcinoma. part much think very one lung you.

Now, is saw where very understand fusion in ROSX three lung disease EGFR you biomarker happy we're to have we're RET important that and data sets also important TMB an to and and And increasingly, starting ALK and potential PD-LX it's proteins you cancer. and a present. that

course, small lung similar in data this was data cancer, then, select The monotherapy. cancer, both for at patients select Meetings We first to you group World Yervoy year, which week could biomarker.

look important of to we tumors. studies, in So many wide a for something of variety at think this our us is that's in

is be news panel, there to defined the ACR, – do doing think, appears sequencing very to think use And I the I both be a Now, we whether we excellent of did And set genes. you good is a When with concordance your two a evolving. how showed question XLA as that of did FoundationOne specific it, that, sequencing sequencing the it, between will it you as is we mechanism exome whether how we for assay. set whole about do do at that's a our measure or field for whole and a panel Foundation of plans exome types CheckMate think good this one. CheckMate-XXX, you is about the

area I how but think area the of You result, that's it's a also concordant great important TMB? same important think tumor our one think don't several very becomes as going it based, translational this all be to teams a the of to does think it that's measure are do will their I will evolve interest, each putting over be years, another where next lot get TMB more and serum-based, with I results attention. marker. be Will exact about, an other. is the medicine

want the to Your plan second about I statistical question I to CheckMate-XXX. going be regarding We one And aren't plan. CheckMate-XXX. of is say about stat think the talking really just thing

important, have across at talk we about optionality that, plan you look that the broad going variety great I of to we your of have and continue one tumors. of the to TMB on but endpoints co-primary with quite we're question think today As of PFS a and stat know, CheckMate-XXX. not But is we at enthusiasm, and looking OS,

You're back.

Jami Rubin


happened there. know that. I don't about Anyway. Sorry what

As which you used time, have year. are adjuvant will has second-line big the as hopefully a the lung about important, two will we to renal, dynamics trends frontline same in very over in change frontline At KEYTRUDA year, think the next opportunities. melanoma, for start been

So sales think about and can just to help us be just about very us down, you will sort that. Thanks the high-level sort next the to pulls Opdivo of help line, to year? flat, think Bottom franchise up, much. pushes

Giovanni Caforio

Jami, this your Giovanni. Thanks questions. is for

current So to let with perspective for for year, in respect a CheckMate-XXX I'll then, changed. me timing to the that's trends his to the perspective the you really you we've on Murdo on analysis half not give first consistently analysis, interim maybe my give of ask comment, say, just and and final Opdivo. said next Tom

give not do it's this that, are, existing going to perspective It's discuss XXXX point premature We important to but trends. on at specifically. any obviously, to more

Thomas J. Lynch, Jr.

And the Jami, question Giovanni, thanks thanks, for interim. your and about

happen. we interim – what know going that, events you and as don't really to are when the So you know, event-driven. about And can't is said it's you

that's X, events We you'd they but love either on to they frustrating, events, the think be date to will We to be able all and we're have the for that point. early data the You say that wait happen that could have as happen. to based interim to interim of expect in things. to to when happen expect that. because being going you predict the looking XXXX we've at happen at actually CheckMate-XXX when to extremely on we have all end in But the analysis said that of share looking XXXX the with at we and happen on data we're when along, first or XXXX, have half we able forward to and

Murdo Gordon

experiencing lung good to same year-to-date really Australia come And that that for growth the in reimbursement, trends the we've the growth U.S. about online the and for ex-U.S. in the opportunity related having secured question reimbursement second-line cancer pleased obviously, on penetration and and Jami, and recently, most of as trends and ex-U.S. Opdivo We're, we're thanks UK of seeing Opdivo. on stable performance source the

catalyst our on about clearly, updated Opdivo at to first-line are excited Now, in data, we portfolio shares from in the anecdotal lead benefit the very in growth. U.S., in and catalyst in strong. doing patients the look hepatocellular for early NPS That's of well hopefully, having data high renal of great despite really term. near we an in beyond continue to Opdivo carcinoma just strong and if the recently first-line setting Yervoy, feedback forward, quickly, lung, we some in launching that the the in also also reviewed the benefit submitted And competition and hold carcinoma And be quickly and strong for data looking We're so cabo combination in cell RCC, guidelines the melanoma. across another also is I-O CheckMate-XXX that that second-line. strong growth those adjuvant some to going OS And will for we're experience NCCN were could from to first-line reflect the metastatic renal. trial, also the hopeful we're

So this I year would were on in know grow U.S. or the there not whether questions we

I feel lot talking as a over have medical still in data terms go. obviously, that and customer and execution read to the of do But can facing sets to you variables quarters year. everything out we think I next be a good and are we'll there would lot very of a and performance the to and been we commercial we've we strong of

growth be And impacted mix. the of us, a has by has of by by going given for and the Eliquis, For will our notwithstanding HCV gross we has which Pfizer. and you had it inventory structure our XXXX, been nice quarter been this margin XX% margin And below a million. relationship where $XX as P&L large, our forward, mix, write-off guided with driver know, particular

So margin think by have HCV, does it side. we're of on growth, also, end of lose towards although in top high-margin also And and at the the a end and we Sustiva can on in U.S. large, this good headwind the line you the Eliquis do of year of sense really Reyataz the products. although, and very the

I context about So of being Eliquis a think it in drag. the would

We are losing some higher-margin products.

So margin you can think about the factor gross mix being in the most our forward. important going

Murdo Gordon

on And in pleased quarter with in we're quarter-over-quarter Eliquis really obviously, We're seeing. and up demand sequentially over up we're prior demand trends demand. Seamus, just trends, X% that year XX% TRx same

can please? the to go Tracy, next we question,


ahead. Guggenheim take question from will We Tony Partners. next Butler from our now Please go

Unknown Speaker

are Hey, we this Could patients, is cancer Butler. what your patients comes tell data given as do variable to highly And IDOX you. see mutation fact So, do high? you little Tony lung Daniel TMB, concerning non-small you (XX:XX) us a problem second initial proportion IDOX of a inhibition? individual non-small about is can or frequency you think cell at SITC it data we in IDOX from see cancer for program? when the cell the lung efficacy inhibitor some question expect maybe that general, in and, TMB bit Thank across TDOX what in would is then, that

Thomas J. Lynch, Jr.

first Tom. I'll this on is two IDO. answer [Daniel] Thank (sic) Tony the you. questions So (XX:XX),

I'd things think about couple important of an the think a at We three years. I to past Bristol-Myers general. in for and we two this IDO say is way felt IDO target,

we're inhibitor.

But important talked with patients. for if endpoint. tell think us will think We IDO. about also in so matters clinical cancer, Bristol plans non-small only lung the it it we IDO Incyte, and are with an about I is begin studies, our that melanoma studies separate lines two we've think we and proceeding our with much have we trials cell plans in and of registrational to

clinical to expect. want on what to we and year, we SITC mentioned, presenting IDO this say that of data to meeting. things seeing be a at you the couple as about efficacy Now, at look SITC will data our forward first I

into remember, a You studies. we're this where agent remarkably this registrational the has been point Phase have beginning way to development from now all of the I, quick

the so, emerge. take to does And time data

very two seeing seeing but you'll or most there which importantly, data, will some at to SITC the well. on SITC, think we out one be data You safety tumors be efficacy is important as at meeting some get

safety data presented So some this some will year. and SITC up coming at efficacy be data

registrational will on our studies to be as of our year. drug the at first So have again, our mentioned, IDO end important we drug. data this And beginning that studies we our with expect

mutational Second lung non-small be questions in comes about TMB, and what the down cell frequency set thinking of again, to cancer. will

what at safe that it's point. still something that this not is think I believe to which say XXX% this is we known

know different this a say group patients. non-small in I those of treated number this it's of To what prospective really at see that until prospectively where really the XX%, to think cancer really of studies cell you it's doing at lung what wants really what is substantial bands the stratifications need is CheckMate to like. the point is, have I safe I to group think think an you think fairly do we're to like portion are looks I final overall with of one TMB of patients point XLA, prevalence to that will this generous is TMB whether do think it's and I sense treat. what a think that XX% of in we patients where you percentage see a be, and important

you that it's percentage or think may lung with as elevated I cell TMB. important non-small of what qualify an having can definitely cancer patients say is higher

question, go Thanks. please? to the Tracy, next we can


We now will JPMorgan. Schott take Please from ahead. Chris from our go question next

Chris Schott

Thanks much. very Great.

here. Just two questions

much. PD-X in we relative about as you're second you to Opdivo-Yervoy the to that going think forward? Thanks commercial thinking studies guess whether And here influence I in know do First but products? you to we think balancing predict a which from combo seems also the of it's I additional different study opportunity A, response can TMB. types. in on or very tumor tumor some any markers that this these that dose, combo either different see My both indication, about your running or just, coming was as as about around different confidence, back question the talk B, predictive using some CheckMate-XXX learnings how types, it's renal, status,

Giovanni Caforio

you. thank Chris,

you for on So there Tom. some I'll a to ask are and couple Murdo questions give of renal, then, perspective

Murdo Gordon

Yes, thanks about regimen Opdivo for really our opportunity the in we're question, Yervoy the the Chris. I-O franchise, frontline. total renal think When we plus excited about for

the treated terms of opportunity patients. population, second-line in in size opportunity frontline roughly the of the terms scale-wise of twice is Just patient

about think the you X,XXX if first-line that double the So RCC about second-line to about in per size you're being in the of treated year, patient U.S. setting. population

overall cetera, think there'll I survival that compelling obviously, that SITC at a a demonstrate we've presentation little an data I in able for very, depending us. in be is and been very So opportunity trial could think interesting for while. that to And on et update labeling, be what

have in nice a materialize you a take We the holding. malignancies. and might because than effect right over longer is in of And on now job to will slower-moving done in malignancy second-line TKI's share other see versus progression, second-line terms this XX%

So an well, going at of year, second-line. for to and next a robust least first-line, if continuing have you're nice in uptake in goes overlap a all business

John E. Elicker

And I evaluate release, that regard with we'll press to think, time. at David, our the

that. can we on the think please? Tracy, premature I to go next it's speculate question, to


from Suisse Suisse. Divan Securities now K. will next Great. take go Divan my so Vamil Please taking (USA) for Thanks LLC question. question much Credit from Vamil Credit We - our ahead.

think PD-X us curious monotherapy, I and on if just right little can going the the with on you terms (XX:XX) combination just more just U.S. to saw that's Just I'm CheckMate-XXX the have following see monotherapy that a CheckMate-XXX. patients discontinued color comments, academic the Is better market is I much give was of to it's now what's And in do adverse likely you XX% prior in side. we still Thanks. and on there? on I melanoma the where Is think lung. think of and (XX:XX) a read-through in mentioned community-based to to you combination, focus where curious, due you how safety with percentage about up events regarding need about question, doing ex-U.S.? okay see with doctors think combination there then, level with discontinuation maybe one of terms And on profile the how the maybe just effects we did a of or So the or that the side a cancer that in of centers in versus to difference use due all second, Yervoy? you lung it's the more of data? when use

Thomas J. Lynch, Jr.

need drug get the So but the into Again, cell. of question. impossible but this that a valid is or is. it's CheckMate-XXX in a It's benefit is, a in Vamil, you we level did to at renal can you we patients not, What thank seen first data, interesting answer to the point hypothetical, level your you you level it's that really raised know benefit. not discontinuation what terms force it that lung really is do what can't of survival point say it's Whether very in was see question. for that to until of in very see seen

Murdo Gordon

melanoma, Vamil, shares metastatic continue the we (XX:XX) And on see really regimen. strong just for marker Yeah. to first-line

combination. So all roughly And XX%. XX% Yervoy another Opdivo first-line you all plus monotherapy, metastatic new of add in up receive if then, about melanoma remaining patients it's the

Opdivo, in adjuvant to percentage with some what's Yervoy. in the dynamics metastatic, will the dynamics change a large FDA, in got an and in a guidelines seeing of setting, the then, update future setting, happening percentage the in the KEYTRUDA. We're NCCN approval which and on expect in we hopefully, uptake adjuvant you've from change the Opdivo would rapid changing some So of large the made combination, so also rest that up will also of

declined if with at X-milligram and the So Yervoy to be combination used by some adjuvant, that's in then, metastatic. off-label looking in continuing underneath just use on Opdivo Yervoy sales X-milligram to the you're be extent currently will in being Opdivo sales, replaced dynamic

forward, BRAF melanoma So in mind Opdivo to our trends strengthening have going but very trying performance keep patients. plus to as dynamic regimen, our about focused total just you we on some on in think a Yervoy and improve we're

John E. Elicker

Vamil. go Thanks, we question, please, Tracy? Can to the next


go ahead. with Gilbert Deutsche take We from our will Gregg now next question Bank. Please

thanks your question. Gregg, So for

decision-making because more things influenced little some own our about have, we seen of the regarding that give data think we've upon that first, promising IDO things with the data a epacadostat color are What the Incyte, depends seen it one as we've I the with So epacadostat with with that we've you seen of the Opdivo. epacadostat. Opdivo, data, interesting that's a very will saying our one class, drug, and of than and I

end, a have at does it little looking readouts we agents the too across you're ultimately, correct different I that. to data, careful much So the think and, upon about so about of depend be

the Well, one the for bottom have question. of Tracy, hour, more we we're up to time coming think I


from question from will now our Barclays. take We Meacham next Geoff

Geoffrey Meacham

thanks quick and guys the I morning, have Good for ones. just couple of question. a

make looks stable but be start U.S., Opdivo you. flows to trends? to sure on new I-O. wasn't combo is as patient I are follow to de-risking the make further up Would question committed foundational sure in And us can largely downstream? used Thank CTLA-X earlier an on first-line trends. it impact second-line sense then, in the quarter, wanted I important guys overall gen an mechanism for the KEYTRUDA program. you as to tell next forward? having on You CTLA-X what on needed Is and in an what that going lung

Thomas J. Lynch, Jr.

combination the is delivered to the to us. incredibly impact for I has earlier continues to thanks we important We mechanism believe a patients It's for think, continues broadly. and on Opdivo-Yervoy Geoff, CTLA-X. and So that improve as said that again, CTLA-X deliver question

gen very some has CTLA-X are compounds. that believe One do year. clinical this that we're Now, greater very And is there to second opportunities is two again, trials which that hope for the And partner, our have begin our that with to the at entered formulation, soon. clinical at there them. and CytomX, trials non-fucosylated in exciting and is looking seems the looking Probody potency we looks that we of next technology

two foundational and those with would at approaches, agents to point once I those the inclined either forward of So see evidence of move efficacy, both offer a certainly we for potential have believe be think partner kind we safety that the CTLA-X patients to as to Opdivo. just I potential down now, do road. that they the us – of have benefit like to the they that is

Murdo Gordon

That's Yes, commercially and are second-line, medical just as organizations. and our mentioned, Geoff, on nicely. performance up the shares, very a strong holding you with

pool We immuno-oncology are second-line seeing the lower on of slightly eligible impact patients.

in seen in agent So an percentage of in neighborhood I-O before. the who terms have that first-line not reduction of volume patients roughly of X% is

as so the expected. So that's little less to first-line, Opdivo. of is a We're and share of bit a helping than also that's Pembro penetration it's holding anticipated, non-promoted first-line reduction With onto we'd in that some we (XX:XX:XX) respect also stable.

Giovanni Caforio

everyone. thanks, So

quarter trends this the of let execution progress was fronts a me continuing pleased summary, We in commercial the the execution. R&D at a in for overall. respect with call, good I just pipeline am end number say of on Just made strong with good to and us.

again, a We to set you. ahead events us. talk Thanks, And look of day. have a number to of good have all have obviously, of opportunity and of ahead to important broaden to which continuing, of us, the the opportunities continue to I we have forward


today's concludes This call.
