Although the malignant melanoma market has become increasingly crowded, an evolving trend of combining drug classes to create novel therapies is expanding treatment options for patients. While both the resectable and metastatic settings are heavily dominated by immune checkpoint inhibitors, such as market-leading Bristol-Myers Squibb / Ono Pharmaceutical’s Yervoy and Opdivo, and Merck & Co.’s Keytruda, opportunities remain for novel agents specifically targeting the underpenetrated BRAF wild-type unresectable or metastatic setting. With the expected introduction of novel agents for later lines, the malignant melanoma treatment algorithm will continue to evolve. In such a dynamic indication, marketed drugs need to be carefully positioned to achieve optimal uptake.
