Findings from 2 studies indicate sustained long-term quality of life: nivolumab with or without ipilimumab in previously untreated advanced melanoma

Two new analyses of CheckMate 067 data determined that quality of life was maintained throughout the course of treatment (either nivolumab alone or with ipilimumab), on long-term (4-year) follow-up and, importantly, that these benefits persisted when the patients were off therapy [1,2].

The phase 3 CheckMate 067 was a double-blind, randomised trial that evaluated the combination of nivolumab plus ipilimumab (n=314) or nivolumab monotherapy (n=316) versus ipilimumab monotherapy (n=315) in a total of 945 patients with previously untreated advanced melanoma.

An analysis exploring long-term quality of life and symptom burden found that quality of life was maintained during the treatment-free interval –the period where a patient is off study treatment and free of subsequent therapy– in patients with previously untreated unresectable...
