BMS is conducting a Phase 2 study in RCC in North America and Europe, and plans to initiate registrational studies for anti-PD-1 this year in NSCLC and RCC, and late 2012, early 2013 for metastatic melanoma. On the other hand, Ono is conducting a Phase 2 study in metastatic melanoma in Japan, and plans to initiate clinical studies in RCC and NSCLC, taking account of the development status in United States and Europe.
