The introduction of immune checkpoint inhibitor therapies, Keytruda (Merck & Co.) and Opdivo ± Yervoy (Bristol Myers Squibb), as well as BRAF/MEK inhibitor combination regimens, such as Roche / Genentech’s Zelboraf + Cotellic, Novartis’s Tafinlar + Mekinist, and, more recently, Pfizer / Array BioPharma’s Braftovi + Mektovi, has significantly changed the treatment landscape for malignant melanoma in both the resectable and metastatic settings. Nonetheless, opportunities remain for novel agents specifically targeting the underpenetrated BRAF wild-type unresectable or metastatic population. With the expected introduction of novel agents and combination regimens, 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.
