Sydney man Leigh Miller, 29, was diagnosed with advanced melanoma last year that spread to his liver, lung, blood and brain.
Mr Miller received immunotherapy drugs Yervoy and Opdivo that conjured the power of his immune system to fight the cancer.
MRI results show the tumours on Mr Miller’s brain have disappeared, one year after treatment.
‘What we want to do is get an army of immune cells to kill the tumour. The first drug gets that army together, the second allows that army to get down there and kill,’ she said.
