Hello and welcome to OncLive News Network, Breaking News. I'm Gina Columbus.

The FDA has approved a second dosing schedule for the PD-1 inhibitor nivolumab across all of the PD-1 inhibitor's monotherapy indications. This now allows physicians to prescribe the new dosing schedule of 480 mg of nivolumab every 4 weeks.

Nivolumab is currently approved as a single agent for advanced melanoma, advanced non-small cell lung cancer, advanced renal cell carcinoma, metastatic urothelial carcinoma, Hodgkin lymphoma, and advanced head and neck squamous cell carcinoma.
