The CTLA-4 inhibitor tremelimumab has previously been investigated in patients with melanoma. The only phase III clinical trial of tremelimumab to date was published in 2013, and it failed to show a statistically significant improvement in overall survival when patients with previously untreated metastatic melanoma were treated with tremelimumab compared to standard chemotherapy alone (NCT00257205; Ribas et al. 2013).
