Dr Wolchok talks to ecancertv at ASCO 2015 about results from a randomised phase III trial which indicate that initial therapy with nivolumab alone or in combination with ipilimumab is significantly more effective than ipilimumab alone.

These results represent yet another major step forward in tackling melanoma.
