Adjuvant therapy with pembrolizumab (Keytruda) 200 mg every 3 weeks for up to 1 year in patients with high-risk stage III melanoma reduced the risk of recurrence or death by 43% with no new toxic effects identified, as per results from the phase III EORTC 1325-MG/KEYNOTE-054 trial published April 15, 2018 in the New England Journal of Medicine.
