Dr Louis Weiner - Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center, Washington D.C, USA

Dr Louis Weiner comments on Dr Stephen Hodi's research for ecancertv at AACR 2015.

Dr Weiner discusses results from the study by Hodi which could alter the current first-line treatment for advanced melanoma that has spread within the body.

The clinical trial found that combining ipilimumab with another immunotherapy drug nivolumab provided much more effective treatment than ipilimumab alone.
