The FDA last week approved Bristol Myers Squibb’s and bluebird bio’s Abecma for the treatment of multiple myeloma in patients who have not responded to at least four previous rounds of treatment. Abecma is the first CAR-T cell therapy approved for multiple myeloma. This is the second CAR-T therapy for Bristol Myers, following Breyanzi’s lymphoma nod in February. Early data shows Breyanzi is currently covered for 9% of all insured lives, with utilization management restrictions applied.
