About this trial

The purpose of this trial is to compare whether there is a difference in treatment outcome for patients treated with Nivolumab manufactured by Process C or the newly developed comparable drug manufactured by Process D.

Nivolumab is currently being developed in the treatment of Melanoma and has been shown to derive benefit in patients with completely resected Stage IIIb/c or Stage IV. This study will compare both processes of developing the drug. Patients will be treated by IV every 2 weeks from Week 1 to Week 17 followed by every 4 weeks from week 19 to Week 51.
