Gene-based blood test for melanoma spread evaluates treatment progress
A test that monitors blood levels of DNA fragments released by dying tumor cells may serve as an accurate early indicator of treatment success in people in late stages of one of the most aggressive forms of skin cancer, a new study finds.
Study: Vaccine protects against melanoma recurrence up to four years
A custom-made vaccine against melanoma still protects against advanced disease four years after cancer patients receive it, according to a study published by Nature Medicine.
Black melanoma patients face treatment delays: Study
Black Americans with melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, wait longer for surgery than white patients, a new study finds.
New melanoma staging guidelines to improve consistency, accuracy of diagnoses
Researchers with the American Joint Committee on Cancer have updated the guidelines for determining the severity of individual cases of a type of serious skin cancer known as invasive melanoma.
Cancer immunotherapy uses melanin against melanoma
Researchers have developed a melanin-enhanced cancer immunotherapy technique that can also serve as a vaccine, based on early experiments done in a mouse model. The technique is applied via a transdermal patch.
Immune-focused drug may be weapon against advanced melanoma
New research suggested that Opdivo — a drug that works with the immune system to fight melanoma — is more effective than the current standard of care for patients who've had surgery to remove advanced tumors.
Australian researchers say they can stop melanoma spreading
Researchers say a combination of new treatments can stop the world's deadliest form of skin cancer – melanoma – in its tracks and halt its spread to other organs.
Strong connection exists between Parkinson's and melanoma
People with Parkinson's disease are about four times more likely to develop melanoma skin cancer and conversely, people with melanoma have a fourfold higher risk of getting Parkinson's, researchers report.
Immunity against melanoma is only skin deep
In a newly published study, researchers at Dartmouth's Norris Cotton Cancer Center found that unique immune cells, called resident memory T cells, do an outstanding job of preventing melanoma.
Sunbed users get melanoma at younger age
Melanoma is the most dangerous type of skin cancer with the strongest increase in incidence in the last decade, and the incidence rates have never been as high as in 2014.
New blood test improves melanoma monitoring
New study has found new markers for melanoma which may allow the disease to be accurately monitored via a routine blood test.
Study finds new potential melanoma drug target
A new treatment for melanoma could be on the horizon, thanks to a finding by a UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center-led team.
