Yervoy and Zelboraf's high costs have generated significant commercial reward, but have limited uptake of the drugs in more cost-conservative markets. However, where funded they remain the standard of care due to the lack of alternative treatments.

The combination of pipeline BRAF inhibitor dabrafenib and MEK inhibitor trametinib is thought to be the biggest threat to the current marketed therapies. The potential of this combination therapy to overcome resistance to BRAF inhibitor monotherapy could allow it to compete strongly in this setting and take market share from Zelboraf.

The limited treatment options in the adjuvant setting will allow the pipeline drugs targeting this patient population to face fewer barriers to market entry. There are currently two melanoma vaccines in development in this setting.
