Merck's (MRK +1.1%) MK-3475 treatment performed well in a Phase IB study of 85 patients with advanced melanoma, with 43 experiencing an "objective response." Of those, eight had a "complete response." Merck now plans to start Phase II trials of MK-3475. The drug is part of a new class of agents called PD-1 inhibitors, which help the immune system to overcome tumors. (PR)
