Malignant Melanoma (First-Line Unresectable/Metastatic) | Decision Base | US | 2015

The launch of these agents has significantly altered the treatment algorithm and improved the outlook for patients; nevertheless, our research indicates that significant clinical and commercial opportunity remains for therapies that can further prolong overall survival (OS). Several therapies are in late-stage development for first-line unresectable/metastatic malignant melanoma, all of which are showing considerable potential for improving efficacy outcomes in this indication.
