Anyone know if any hospital starting the Expanded Access Program ( EPA ) for MK-3473 (Lambrolizumab/Pembrolizumab) is allowing melanoma patients to participate in the EPA without having taken Ipilimumab first?
The EAP is only available to those patients who have progressed on Ipi (Yervoy) or if they are BRAF positive, a BRAF and/or MEK therapy.
All things are possible through God!
Rosa is correct. Break down of EAP if you are interested: http://chaoticallypreciselifeloveandmelanoma.blogspot.com/2014/03/expanded-access-program-for-mercks-anti.html
Wishing you my best. Celeste
