Dr Stephen Hodi - Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Boston, USA

Dr Stephen Hodi presents results at AACR 2016, following up on five year survival rates of metastatic melanoma patients who had received nivolumab.

He reports that the number of patients surviving beyond the five year mark is double that of treatment in years before nivolumab was available (34% v 16.6% 2005-2011)

For more on these results, you can read the associated news article here.
