I've been out of the loop for the past year while dealing with the mets to my liver and was wondering what the new latest greatest trials are out there?

I've completed 3 Opdivo + Yervoy treatments and about 6 months of Opdivo only. My tumors are stable now for about 18 months, but I am worried they will either continue to spread or start growing again. I cannot get them removed as they are small and scattered.

Any new news would be very helpful! THANK YOU!

Hey, we have been looking into the IMCgp100 trial. Still trying to find more information about it. It is relatively new but the phase 1 trial did show some promise. My mother has uveal melanoma metastasis to liver & now spreading all over. We only made it through two rounds of IPI/Nivo before her LFT's became too elevated to continue. Since then we have been doing alternating rounds of chemoembolization with BCNU (much less adverse effects & has been shown to work on bulky tumors) & radioembolization Y90 (on the right lobe of her liver where there are smaller scattered tumors). She has shown mixed response to the radioembolization. I'm not sure if you've looked into that option. I'll let you know if I get more info on the trial. God bless!
