ASCO 2024 | HCRN MEL17-309: Phase II study of adjuvant nivolumab with ipilimumab in high-risk uveal melanoma

Suthee Rapisuwon, MD, Georgetown University, Washington, DC, discusses a prospective multi-center phase II study of adjuvant nivolumab/ipilimumab in high-risk uveal melanoma patients. With a median follow-up of 36 months, the 3-year distant metastatic-free survival (DMFS) rate was significantly improved at 70.4% compared to 43.4% in the control cohort. Although treatment-related adverse events were common, this regimen shows promise as adjuvant therapy for high-risk uveal melanoma, warranting further investigation. This interview took place during the 2024 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Meeting in Chicago, IL.
