next Could Thanks, go Orlando. we please? to Giovanni. one, the


Baum with from Citi. Andrew We'll Yes. hear

Andrew Baum

Thank you. questions, please. of Couple

and that validate what Extensively, favorable having requirement, comments. score you a IPI the us favored of seem could nation's Giovanni, happened to also Bristol But being time. give that last doesn't referred the executive it in HHS industry. to requirements opening regarding seem you true in most would order President's which to concern Firstly, that able for level is likely the CBO the in the on given your

has the risk understand therefore, has round. time just threat and the I'm shouldn't So be are is. relaxed proposal quite lags? real to the something we last what that we that changes, given And whether trying how changed is as real and this as

ESMO. data at Second, perhaps Samit of forthcoming could talk the to some

immuno-oncology on ex in INR have And ESMO?. their a getting And a impact delay function of of we where out COVID? see How NOAC For Thank do deep data among agents, see particularly ILX share will just patients at finally, Eliquis the as of U.S., from tranche medical CCR-XX, then COVID reimbursement. centers You much Europe, market measures? obviously there's what you for trying you. keep a to scope in increases others,

Giovanni Caforio


demand. government start into insights some maybe give Samit me cover So let on ESMO, and let related Chris will me question on issues. can your you

all, Andrew, let early me think I it's more of any really say, provide granular first assessment. So to

yet. seen executive know, not you order the we have IPI As

opening be. we to so is respect there and not of U.S. the that remarks, for I with want a respect again, uncertainty my the go. direction is to implementation what And to what path feel is right with that, I the may in said order to is in say, some to strongly what level there really it very

just our view. and the I but associations not stakeholders our are industry, across policy patients and aligned other with shared providers is view think

patients. in really we I the solution levels think to be internationally to U.S. issues. working U.S. should as is And for patient that and affordability patients not as the are quite not do work into the It frankly, patient issues to import models pricing affordability doesn't the is IPI doing for on much

different to us really with industry to our administration continue invest in also be enable solutions would patients of So help continues open types to to discussing that would innovation. but more, the

think would With are about a And and understands U.S. multiple the we a various much be move versus be in clearly of goes that about The question our I able the on the time industry rule importance the when we we what continue quite perspective, look sales, we you frankly, a in about of knew past how is From think have which XX%. that at about our into segments. was hope our it's our to a directions than assess it's you impact at to as internationally would we reference important U.S. significant the really rebate in the And thinking which primarily the of disease. the are ability and your in that at of industry, benefits. in everybody rule, Part to the industry version, fighting that it's invest XX% today XX% business. in cost would innovation. IPI across hope respect see B more and of it think about rebate when it's just sort in portfolio, I better and to differentiated our about patients of really extremely point, U.S. our HHS for the least implications

at would I can that on were really the issue certified would all not So how speculate sure, the in and whether be that this previous version even raised at issues point. I'm an be

know think Samit? just as I much I that's at point. this

Samit Hirawat

Thank you. Thanks, Andrew on the for the question ESMO.

or and covered inclusive is follow the in the subtypes on There update to a Checkmate our population, as But for the on some several that studies differentiating not focus data and from primarily would it the currently cancer, Phase updates. the way with all favorable is setting. IO the XER will being Chris dual look study. that presentations dual at that in because for as in are And X also well there you other be risk that which renal think earlier in presentations a I are presented ESMO to comments four-year most are the important at IO heard certainly is one to mentioned both cell earlier, up of therapy. as data inclusive

Chris Boerner

for question Andrew the on Eliquis. Thanks Yes.

in let fundamentals U.S. for So the Eliquis at ex both remains outset strong say very just U.S. and me the that

markets one in there With respect fundamentals, markets. two the XX the are again We're are And at now are to COVID two in number five play. globally. the OAC very additional impact, number really that things strong. With

negative seen that though build for And U.S. then impact there's the in the That's main but begun quarter. impact that of As impact we recover. in patient patient U.S., been down on David not inventory really the reflective work on significant that largest mentioned, OAC the was impacted mainly QX. volumes. that by an April. was the demand down. total the the a that's come impact inventory We've seen in the smaller new The and of fact we've been been there's to It's volume COVID has exclusively, That's in saw most impact an market not has

impacted number the alluded one for has hospitals have and to a first you of patients to other that As has players. seen institution. share. keep relative COVID Eliquis all, you Eliquis And been disproportionately secondarily, potential of of as desire been And out try warfarin in to -- we of upsides that's note, markets, the to unaffected by then

Yes, Navin.

Navin Jacob

Perfect. Thanks.

I Just could quarter. pipeline. of analyses Are a first-line was study early how then the you strong the than the of MS happen And look? inventory there few remind us readout.

Nadim we couple Samit Why don't ask Navin. then you, a your of questions. to Thank will cover start related and pipeline

Nadim Ahmed

thanks Great. question. your Navin, for

of the especially allowed And Overall, good knowledge us good I we have with that you access a especially are to thing encouraged some adoption especially and of we course, to MDS far, commercial we're very have ESA patients, reiterate by to launch. players, early have we field we ability so of factors the seen teams one pivot of I get access. earlier. in teams refractory relationships now MDS July. unmet has virtual of And that launch key very MDS, permanent of and mechanism action think prescribers So our of need since the that significant and do have our experience unique have Reblozyl, and the heard good J-Code a that here Reblozyl in to want

Phase a study Yes. it's study. COMMANDS perspective, Thank X you. From the

patients study -- starting line in you coming timeframe. first The enrolling. at XXXX readout know, that which XXXX off. study in is both We're setting and just RS-negative looking As currently includes late and is myelofibrosis the RS-positive

very think question, I Rolando. time maybe for quick one last have we


right. that All get Matt Blair. We'll from with Phipps question William

Matt Phipps

Thanks my for questions. taking

with sales up Opdivo us is the think of of to in data. of your Or regiment on going time some RCC? you Opdivo Do RCC? quick really XER ESMO ahead have regimens? you more recently and different in And Just of thought it center subcu you all remind accelerating COVID Opdivo? another with Yervoy? total for that's about impacts Can can across related second grow then shore just the started launch just one, Looks you infusion combined Thanks. access, the like Opdivo positioning that you presentation subcutaneous trial meaningfully a on

Giovanni Caforio

Thank you, Matt.

Chris Boerner

Sorry, Giovanni, with maybe renal cell. I'll start

So, just from the quarter. where business baseline Matt, the the last that today, of is unchanged roughly is market is share

of and and Our for between on first in renal time XX% avoiding Yervoy XX% line first end is overall the you're between renal share of XX%. and people Opdivo XX is upper that

that with under data the the And in we're would also safety the very of OS upper about currently both expect by we've are encouraged patient population, indication. label. importantly, that very and happy end is, is favorable penetrated which the On of way for all, we you off seen profile. XER thinking first on the we're We're then And labeled as PFS.

presented. And think these very provide options. provide so data -- still positioning we about as and compelling these full while to need data IO/TKI early to this agent, a opportunity respect the set see We being existing we with days think it's

share So think IO/TKI drive in opportunity space. there's to clear this from a existing regimens we

opportunity us the as was favorable risk sizable Second, today, -- TKI included well, an monotherapies across as patient conducted percentage first-line included It's in because still first-line as favorable status about remember, the for in We population. that's XX% mostly a use. fairly XER population. it think well

us continue for to share population well. in to opportunity real a there's think we drive So as that

plus with we setting last about TKI we options us fact our both in only I And so, -- that different cell position have the Yervoy IO the with and in mono play. have is this to opportunity remember in in first-line. second-line that And I have would the renal say therapy at here many thing Opdivo company the gives think a be will we modalities

opportunity so And grow very first-line to to continue think for to XXXX is we're the XER brand a going when it's position have to with strong an approved. important going starting and in be us we

Samit Hirawat

Phase we're where parameters, PK of our it comes the Thank good so working at are study the subcu with development, forward looking health X we that the to readouts to compare looking you, be it Chris. where then continuously And that and IV with concert and to when the able the on we'll agencies. to on communications parameter. progress making And then
