Özet

In the last decade, immune checkpoint inhibitors changed the landscape of metastatic melanoma. However, the optimal duration of treatment and treatment cessation in responders is largely unknown. Herein, we represent a heavily pretreated metastatic melanoma case who had a complete response to pembrolizumab and also a complete response with nivolumab after progression during drug-free follow-up. We think that reinduction with a different anti-PD1 antibody may be used in patients with metastatic melanoma responders. Clinical trials with prespecified sequential treatment protocols and large real-life data can further delineate this subject.
