Is interferon still an appropriate treatment??? Study of ipi on Stage III/IV resected melanoma patients...

To me the question this raises, is why, given the increasingly weak justification, the denial of ipi (and perhaps in the future, anti-PD1) as the standard adjuvant therapy for Stage III/IV melanoma patients is allowed to continue.  It will take many years, and innumerable additional deaths of human lab rats in the "control arm", to satisfy pseudo-scientific and bureaucratic requirements at our current rate.  Is this appropriate?  Humane?  Reasonable? Tolerable?  I think NOT!!!!!!!
