Just a few months after Merck’s monster May for Keytruda, which featured three FDA approvals, the drugmaker is back with another green light.
Merck will pony up $625 million plus royalties on its blockbuster cancer med Keytruda to settle up its patent dispute with Opdivo-maker Bristol-Myers. The royalty stream could be "quite meaningful," one analyst said.
Opdivo was the first drug in the PD-1/PD-L1 inhibitor class to reach the market after its approval in Japan in 2014, but then followed Merck’s Keytruda by several months in winning an FDA approval—and the two drugs have seesawed for dominance ever since.
