Melanoma and DTIC

Available by prescription only, DTIC-Dome® (dacarbazine) is a chemotherapy medication that is reserved for use in people who have Hodgkin's disease or malignant melanoma. DTIC-Dome comes in the form of an injection that is given into a vein (an intravenous, or IV, infusion).
Specifically, DTIC-Dome is approved for use in combination with other medications to treat Hodgkin's disease. When used for malignant melanoma (a type of skin cancer), its use is reserved for cases that have spread to other areas of the body (metastasized). DTIC-Dome is approved for use in adults only.
DTIC-Dome works by interfering with cell division, which helps prevent cancer cells from multiplying.
