Melanoma Research

Researchers are looking at several new treatment options for melanoma, which include:
 
  • New anticancer drugs combined with radiation therapy.
  • Combining chemotherapy with biological therapy to boost the immune system to kill cancer cells. This is known as chemoimmunotherapy.
  • Cancer vaccines and a type of gene therapy designed to help the immune system kill cancer cells.

 

Doctors worldwide are conducting many types of melanoma research trials, which are studies in which people take part voluntarily. Patients who join these research studies have the first chance to benefit from melanoma treatments that have shown promise in earlier research. Patients who volunteer will also make an important contribution to medical science by helping doctors learn more about the disease. Although clinical trials may pose some risks, researchers take careful steps to protect their patients.
