At BMS, we work with physicians/investigators to make investigational products available to patients with life-threatening diseases that have exhausted other treatment options and where there is a reasonable expectation of benefit over risk. When contacted by a treating physician, BMS will consider requests for providing early patient access to Nivolumab in pediatric patients exhibiting a high mutational load.
Choosing to participate in an early patient access program is an important personal decision. Talk with your doctor and family members or friends about deciding to join an early patient access program. To learn more about early patient access programs, your doctor may contact BMS using the information provided below.
