The treatment with immune checkpoint inhibitors has changed the entire natural history of advanced melanoma. In a recent study presented at the AACR Congress (New Orleans, April 16-20, 2016), immunotherapy with nivolumab was associated with overall survival rates of 41-42% at 3 years and with an overall survival rate of 35% at 4 and 5 years, suggesting a stable plateau over time and a significant proportion of advanced melanoma patients potentially cured.
