InterVenn Investigator Initiated Research Program in Glycoproteomics

DAWN™ IO | Melanoma Test Is Now Available

Now, before starting therapy, you can identify metastatic melanoma patients who are “Likely” or “Not Likely to Benefit” from certain immunotherapies.

DAWN™ IO | Melanoma is a laboratory developed test to assess whether a patient is likely to benefit from immune checkpoint inhibitor therapy, specifically nivolumab (Opdivo®) in combination with ipilimumab (Yervoy®) or pembrolizumab (Keytruda®) monotherapy.

INTERVENN’s clinical laboratory is certified under the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments of 1988 (CLIA) and accredited by the College of American Pathologists (CAP). The DAWN IO Melanoma test was developed, and its performance characteristics were determined by INTERVENN. The DAWN IO Melanoma test has not been cleared or approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. INTERVENN’s clinical laboratory is regulated under CLIA to perform high-complexity testing. The DAWN IO Melanoma test is intended for clinical purposes.
