Home Forums Melanoma Diagnosis: Stage IV One Year NED – Ipi Reply To: One Year NED – Ipi


Hi Tom, what wonderful news, congratulations! indeed these info are giving us a lot of hope!

My sister finished her last infusion of yervoy on 16 october . Maybe is too early , but her melanoma progress fast and I am very worried that she cannot even begin the anti-PD1 trial if her condition is getting worst.

The article you have posted is also is giving a lot of hope.

Still.. in order to ”arrive” there (to survival) one has first to respond to Yervoy. The responses rates are not so high unfortunately. I heard about different percentages e.g between 15 and 25-28 %. Is because are used different concentrations ?What do you know about this? And how long took for you to respond to yervoy (weeks, months)?

Any comment is welcome.

My best wishes!
