Prof Solange Peters speaks to ecancer about the 3-year update from the CheckMate 743 study.

She explains that in the randomised phase 3 CheckMate 743 study in comparison to chemotherapy, nivolumab and ipilimumab significantly prolonged overall survival in patients with unresectable malignant pleural mesothelioma.

This follow-up study reported the updated three years efficacy and safety, as well as novel biomarker analyses. Prof Peters talks about the results of this study.

She concludes by discussing the impact these results can have on the future treatment of MPS.
