The malignant melanoma therapy market is emerging from a very dynamic period (notably 2011-2015) characterized by a plethora of new drug approvals and label expansions. The approvals of both immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs) and BRAF/MEK-targeted therapies have changed the treatment landscape dramatically. Combination therapies are playing an increasingly greater role in the unresectable recurrent or metastatic setting, including regimens such as Novartis’s Tafinlar plus Mekinist (2014), Roche/Genentech’s Zelboraf plus Cotellic (2015), and Bristol-Myers Squibb’s Opdivo plus Yervoy (2015). Consequently, optimizing sequencing decisions is a key focus for prescribing oncologists, irrespective of patients’ BRAF mutation status.
