Bristol Myers Gains Go-ahead from the FDA for Tumour Treatment

17th June 2024

The FDA has approved a medication made by Bristol Myers Squibb to combat tumours that have a certain biomarker, no matter where in the body they are located.

According to Bristol Myers, Augtyro has been given fast approval by the FDA for solid tumours containing fusions of the NTRK gene. Tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) can be administered to people 12 years old and older, provided that the tumours have either undergone prior treatment or have no other effective therapies.


In order to verify Augtyro’s advantages, BMS will have to submit further information in light of the fast approval. The FDA is requesting tumour reaction and length of response information from “a sufficient number of patients” across cancer types in order to turn the nod into a complete approval. All participating patients will be monitored for at least a year from the start of treatment or until the illness progresses.
