Y

  • Yervoy - Yervoy is approved by the FDA for the treatment of unresctable or metastatic Stage III or IV melanoma. Yervoy is designed to restore and strengthen the immune system by successfully activating T-cells, a critical component of the immune system, thereby sustaining an active immune response to fight the cancer cells. Studies indicate it improves overall median survival by 4 months.
