This drug was in use where I used to work - promising mostly for it's potential; the survival benefit is really quite small at this point but until now advanced melanoma has had no known effective treatment.
Hopefully as more is learned about it and refined versions emerge it will be a real advance. Conceptually it is very interesting.
