Drug Details

BMS-986253 is a novel, fully human monoclonal antibody that inhibits interleukin-8 (IL-8), a chemokine that promotes tumor progression, immune escape, epithelial-mesenchymal transition, and recruitment of myeloid-derived suppressor cells.

Study Purpose

This study is for patients that are hospitalized for Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). The purpose of this study is to see whether neutralizing interleukin-8 (IL-8) with BMS-986253 can help improve the health condition of participants infected with COVID-19. This is the first in-human study of this investigational product specifically in patients with severe COVID-19. Currently there are no FDA approved medications that improve the chance of survival in patients diagnosed with COVID-19. However there are usual treatments currently being used to help treat COVID-19 patients and BMS-986253 will be compared to these standard of care treatments in this study.
