REUTERS: Bristol-Myers Squibb Co said on Friday its blockbuster cancer drug Opdivo failed to meet the main goal in patients with a type of lung cancer, that had relapsed after chemotherapy.

The late-stage study was testing Opdivo against the current standard of care, chemotherapy, in patients suffering from small cell lung cancer, an aggressive form of the disease.
