This is the three year update of a randomised phase III trial in patients with locally advanced inoperable stage III or stage IV melanoma. 1296 patients were radomised to receive either ipilimumab (Ipi), nivolumab (Nivo) or both antibodies (Ipi+Nivo). Complete responses were seen in 5, 16 & 19% of patients in the Ipi, Nivo and Ipi+Nivo groups respectively. Partial responses were seen in 14, 28 & 29% of patients respectively. With a minimum follow up of 28 months 3 year overall survivals were 32, 52 & 58% in the Ipi, Nivo & Ipi+Nivo respectively. In patients with braf mutations the three year survivals were 37, 56 & 68% in the three groups. This compares with a three year survival of 44% in the dabrafenib plus trametinib arm of the COMBI-D trial (J. Clin. Oncol. 2017 Dob: 10.1200/JCO.2017.74.1025). These data represent practice changing data for oncologist who treat melanoma and life changing treatment for patients with metastatic melanoma.
