Bristol-Myers Squibb Company Analyst Notes

On March 5, 2014, Bristol-Myers Squibb Company (Bristol-Myers Squibb) presented 24-week Phase IIb data that demonstrated similar response rates for its investigational compound, BMS-663068, when compared to a boosted protease inhibitor, Reyataz with ritonavir. According to the Company, the study, which was presented at the 21st Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections (CROI), highlights the unique mechanism of action of the investigational prodrug BMS-663068, which when converted into BMS-626529, a novel attachment inhibitor, prevents initial viral attachment to the host CD4+ T cell and entry into the host immune cell. "These study results are encouraging and support further development of BMS-663068 as we continue to look for ways to treat people living with HIV, especially those who have exhausted available therapies and are difficult to treat," said Douglas Manion, M.D., Senior Vice President of Development, Virology at Bristol-Myers Squibb.
