BMS Featured Presentations from ACR 2017

Bristol-Myers Squibb Company confirmed that 34 abstracts related to ORENCIA® (abatacept) and the Company’s immunoscience pipeline will be presented at the 2017 American College of Rheumatology and Association of Rheumatology Health Professionals Annual Meeting, November 3-8, 2017, in San Diego. Building on its heritage of discovering and developing medicines designed to help modulate the body’s immune response to treat autoimmune disease and cancer, the Company will share clinical and real-world ORENCIA data across rheumatoid arthritis (RA), juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) and active psoriatic arthritis, as well as pre-clinical and first-in-human data from BMS-986195, an investigational Bruton’s Tyrosine Kinase (BTK) inhibitor. 

The Bristol-Myers Squibb data being presented will include new insights about how ORENCIA impacts outcomes and treatment costs in patients who exhibit key biomarkers of highly active, progressive RA, such as anti-citrullinated protein antibodies (ACPA), as well as analyses evaluating the link between these biomarkers and certain advanced disease hallmarks such as structural damage progression.3-8 Treatment retention and safety data in the real-world setting to be presented adds to the growing body of evidence on ORENCIA, a selective T-cell co-stimulation modulator. 

“Bristol-Myers Squibb’s research continues to advance the understanding of the relationship between biomarkers such as ACPA and disease prognosis. These biomarkers play an important role in both identification of patients facing highly active, progressive disease, who traditionally have had poor prognoses, and their treatment plans,” said Brian Gavin, Vice President, ORENCIA Development Lead at Bristol-Myers Squibb. “The ORENCIA data we are presenting at the ACR/ARHP Annual Meeting are reflective of our commitment to advancing the science and addressing unmet needs in autoimmune diseases with the ultimate goal of enabling personalized ‘right treatment for the right patient’ approaches.”

Beyond RA in adults, Bristol-Myers Squibb data evaluating the efficacy and safety of ORENCIA in patients aged 2-17 with JIA followed for up to two years will be presented,11 as will pre-clinical and first-in-human data from BMS-986195, an investigational BTK inhibitor.1,2 Bruton's tyrosine kinase (BTK) is an enzyme found inside certain immune cells that plays a fundamental role in the immune response to antigens, which are proteins recognized as foreign materials in the body.12,13
