Site for EA6192: A Phase II Study of Biomarker Driven Early Discontinuation of anti-PD-1 Therapy in Patients with Advanced Melanoma (PET-Stop) (PSCI# 20-097)
The purpose of this study is to compare the safety and effects of stopping the standard treatment with nivolumab or pembrolizumab early with the safety and effects of not stopping the standard treatment early on people’s risk of having advanced melanoma cancer spread more. In this study, you will continue on your standard of care treatment for one more year or you will discontinue your standard of care treatment. Whether you continue or stop treatment is dependent on the results of a PET/CT scan and, if needed, a biopsy. PET/CT scan can be useful for monitoring your type of cancer. There will be about 150 people taking part in this study.
