Feasibility Study to Identify the Optimal Adjuvant Combination Scheme of Ipilimumab and Nivolumab (OpACIN) in resectable stage III melanoma patients
OpACIN is a feasibility study including 20 patients with palpable stage III melanoma that were 1:1 randomized to receive ipilimumab 3mg/kg and nivolumab 1mg/kg, either 4 courses after surgery (adjuvant arm), or 2 courses prior to surgery and 2 courses post-surgery (neoadjuvant arm). WES and RNA-seq was performed on baseline biopsy material and correlated with outcome of the patients (relapse free survival). TCRseq from baseline tumor samples was used to analyse the top 100 tumor resident clones and analyse their change in PBMC comparing baseline versus week 6 of immunotherapy.
