On May 12, 2015, Antoni Ribas, M.D., Ph.D., provided an update on cancer immunotherapy and how to maximize it to treat melanoma. He discussed the immunotherapies that are FDA approved—including Yervoy, Keytruda, and Opdivo—or in the late stages of clinical development and the potential future roles of cancer immunotherapy, including data that suggests that immune therapies can be combined with other types of therapies. He also addressed when to use and not to use immunotherapy and provided data about what to expect clinically from this type of treatment.
