The malignant melanoma treatment landscape is dynamic and continues to undergo significant changes. Three immune checkpoint inhibitors including a dual checkpoint blockade regimen, four BRAF or MEK targeted agents including combination regimens, and a viral therapy have gained regulatory approval for malignant melanoma since 2011. Numerous label expansions for currently marketed therapies are expected to further shape the malignant melanoma market, and with emerging combination therapies demonstrating impressive results, the malignant melanoma market will become increasingly competitive as therapies compete for patient share and sales.
