    I’m told this is good news. When Bristol didn’t announce the trial in January, there was speculation the the combination was not going to be as effective as originally thought.

    This is interesting! Lung cancer has the highest incidence in numbers of cases. Pairing the two hasn’t been convincing yet, but a phase III should show the efficacy. Approval could be quicker since the need for therapy is vast for lung cancer and then melanoma patients could get off label.
