Opdivo Lung Cancer Study has Met its Target: DMC

The independent Data Monitoring Committee (DMC) concluded that the study has met its endpoint.

The company, headquartered in New York, said the data demonstrated a superior overall survival in patients who have been receiving Opdivo as compared to the control arm.
