Study Title: A Phase III Randomized Study of Adjuvant Ipilimumab Anti-CTLA4 Therapy Versus High-Dose Interferon a-2b for Resected High-Risk Melanoma

Purpose: The purpose of this study is to compare the effects, good and/or bad, of ipilimumab with interferon alfa-2b on you and your melanoma to find out which is better.  In this study, you will get either ipilimumab or the interferon alfa-2b. You will not get both. We plan to determine whether ipilimumab stops or delays your cancer from returning in comparison to interferon alfa-2b. Identifier: N/A
