#1726 A Long-Term Complete Response (CR) of Avelumab in Patient (pt) with Advanced Merkel Cell Carcinoma (MCC)

Cisplatin and VP16 chemo may be an effective treatment for metastatic MCC, but responses are often transient. The blockade of programmed death 1 (PD-1) immune inhibitory pathway by avelumab, an anti-PD-L1 checkpoint inhibitor, is being investigated in solid neoplasms. This strategy can also be of interest in MCC because these tumors often express PD-L1
