DREAMseq (Doublet, Randomized Evaluation in Advanced Melanoma Sequencing) a Phase III Trial

Study Overview

This randomized phase III trial studies how well initial treatment with ipilimumab and nivolumab followed by dabrafenib and trametinib works and compares it to initial treatment with dabrafenib and trametinib followed by ipilimumab and nivolumab in treating patients with stage III-IV melanoma that contains a mutation known as v-raf murine sarcoma viral oncogene homolog B V600 (BRAFV600) and cannot be removed by surgery.

Study Description

The purpose of this study is to determine whether initial treatment with either combination ipilimumab-nivolumab (with subsequent dabrafenib in combination with trametinib) or dabrafenib in combination with trametinib (with subsequent ipilimumab-nivolumab) significantly improves 2 year overall survival (OS) in patients with unresectable stage III or stage IV BRAFV600 mutant melanoma.
