The Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer (SITC) developed and published the first evidence-based consensus statement on tumor immunotherapy for the treatment of patients with cutaneous melanoma in Nature Reviews Clinical Oncology in 2013.
On Wednesday, May 30, 2018, SITC published an update in the Journal for ImmunoTherapy of Cancer (JITC), the society's open access, peer-reviewed online journal.
This updated consensus statement provides expert evidence-based recommendations for the use of immunotherapies including checkpoint inhibitor monotherapies and combinations, as well as oncolytic viruses, interferon-α2, and interleukin-2 in various disease stages and settings. This statement also includes recommendations for patient selection, sequencing or combination of therapies, using and screening for predictive biomarkers, managing adverse events, and selecting optimal clinical endpoints.

In light of new data concerning the availability of anti-PD-1 agents for the treatment of patients with stage N1a/IIIA melanoma, the subcommittee was re-polled to generate new consensus recommendations. These new consensus recommendations supersede the original recommendations in Sullivan et al. 2018 within the following sections
Paragraph 1 - ‘Consensus management of microscopic single node disease (stage N1a – AJCC 7th; stage IIIA – AJCC 8th)’
In light of new data concerning efficacy of combination anti-PD-1 nivolumab + anti-CTLA-4 ipilimumab for the treatment of patients with unresectable stage III/IV melanoma, the subcommittee was re-polled to generate new consensus recommendations. These new consensus recommendations supersede the original recommendations in Sullivan et al. 2018 within the following sections
