The purpose of this study is to evaluate pharmacodynamic changes of Nivolumab and Nivolumab in combination with Ipilimumab treatment on the biomarkers measured in the peripheral blood and ...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether an investigational immunotherapy nivolumab in combination with ipilimumab is more effective than nivolumab or ipilimumab alone in treatmen...
The purpose of this study is to assess the safety and tolerability of treatment with Nivolumab in combination with Ipilimumab in subjects with resected Stages IIIB/IIIC/ IV melanoma.
The study is a randomized Phase I/II trial aiming to evaluate the 6 month treatment tolerance defined as the related grade 3-4 toxicity event-free survival and clinical activity of the com...
The purpose of this study is to determine the effects of combination treatment of Nivolumab with Ipilimumab followed by Nivolumab monotherapy in patients with previously untreated advanced...
Brain metastases are a common cause of disabling neurologic complications and death in patients with metastatic melanoma. Previous studies of nivolumab combined with ipilimumab in metastatic melanoma ...
Treatment with nivolumab alone or nivolumab plus ipilimumab achieves intracranial responses.
Nivolumab, a completely human programmed death-1 inhibitor antibody, was first approved by the Food and Drug Administration for patients with advanced malignant melanoma resistant to other modalities ...
Background Nivolumab plus ipilimumab produced objective responses in patients with advanced renal-cell carcinoma in a pilot study. This phase 3 trial compared nivolumab plus ipilimumab with sunitinib ...
An anti-CTLA-4 ANTIGEN monoclonal antibody initially indicated for the treatment of certain types of metastatic MELANOMA. Its mode of actions may include blocking of CTLA-4 mediated inhibition of CYTOTOXIC T LYMPHOCYTES, allowing for more efficient destruction of target tumor cells.
An unpigmented malignant melanoma. It is an anaplastic melanoma consisting of cells derived from melanoblasts but not forming melanin. (Dorland, 27th ed; Stedman, 25th ed)
Experimentally induced tumor that produces MELANIN in animals to provide a model for studying human MELANOMA.
A cellular subtype of malignant melanoma. It is a pigmented lesion composed of melanocytes occurring on sun-exposed skin, usually the face and neck. The melanocytes are commonly multinucleated with a "starburst" appearance. It is considered by many to be the in situ phase of lentigo maligna melanoma.
Found in large amounts in the plasma and urine of patients with malignant melanoma. It is therefore used in the diagnosis of melanoma and for the detection of postoperative metastases. Cysteinyldopa is believed to be formed by the rapid enzymatic hydrolysis of 5-S-glutathionedopa found in melanin-producing cells.
