A Phase 3, Randomized Study of Adjuvant Immunotherapy With Nivolumab Combined With Ipilimumab Versus Nivolumab Monotherapy After Complete Resection of Stage IIIb/c/d or Stage IV Melanoma
The purpose of this study is to determine whether an investigational immunotherapy Nivolumab, when combined with Ipilimumab, is more effective than Nivolumab by itself, in delaying the return of cancer in patients who have had a complete surgical removal of stage IIIb/c/d or stage IV Melanoma
12 Years and up
