Reporting Groups
  Description
Vemurafenib, 960 mg + Ipilimumab, 10 mg/kg Participants received vemurafenib, 960 mg, twice daily for 6 weeks (Vem1 Phase). After a washout period of 3-10 days, patients received ipilimumab, 10 mg/kg, every 3 weeks for a maximum of 4 doses. At Week 24, participants received ipilimumab, 10 mg/kg, every 12 weeks until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients who did not progress or have unacceptable toxicity in the Vem1 Phase were retreated with vemurafenib (Vem 2 Phase) at the last dose level identified at the end of the Vem1 Phase until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

[1] M-stage=stage of metastases (M), based on criteria of the American Joint Committee on Cancer. M0=no metastases. M1A=metastases to skin, subcutaneous tissue, or distant lymph nodes. M1B=metastases to lung. M1C=metastases to all other visceral sites or distant metastases to any site combined with an elevated serum level of lactase dehydrogenase.
Disease Stage at Study Entry [1] 
[Units: Participants]
 
III   8 
IV   38 
[1] Melanoma staging criteria: Stage III (A,B,C)=The tumor may be of any thickness and may or may not be ulcerated. The cancer cells have spread either to a few nearby lymph nodes or tissue just outside the tumor but not to the lymph nodes. Stage IV=The cancer cells have spread to the lymph nodes, other organs in the body, or areas far from the original site of the tumor. This is called metastatic melanoma.

Performance status is scored on a scale ranging from 0-5, with (best score) 0=fully active and able to carry on all predisease performance without restriction and (worst score) 5=death.
