First-degree relatives (FDRs) of patients with melanoma may be among the first to seek melanoma genetic risk information.1 Testing may subsequently prompt useful discussions regarding melanoma risk, early detection, and prevention with multiple family members. To explore this potential, this study examined the intended discussions of FDRs of patients with ...

Importance  Ipilimumab, a human monoclonal antibody targeted against cytotoxic T-lymphocyte antigen 4, has shown promise in the treatment of metastatic melanoma. However, given its mechanism of action, immune-related adverse effects have been reported with this therapy. Despite increasing reports of immune-related adverse effects related to ipilimumab therapy, ...
