The combination of regorafenib (Stivarga) and nivolumab (Opdivo) will be compared with regorafenib alone in a phase III trial of patients with microsatellite stable (MSS) colorectal cancer (CRC), following encouraging phase Ib findings of the REGONIVO study.1

Further biomarker analyses are ongoing for the study.
