Brief Answer:

Melanoma stage 4 and Parkinson's

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

There are no listed contraindications to checkpoint inhibitor usage (Opdivo), beyond allergies to active ingredients or excipients.

At that point, in my opinion, Opdivo doesn’t affect the Parkinson's.

Hope I have answered your query.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Esmeralda Sera, Oncologist
