This issue of Emerging Cancer Therapeutics provides a comprehensive review for practitioners on the current status of melanoma treatment. Due to recent drug approvals and increasing ability to offer combined agents, there are many more treatment options available to melanoma patients than even a few years ago. Especially significant are the recent FDA approval of the immunotherapeutic agent ipilimumab for metastatic melanoma, and new agents targeting the BRAF gene in malignant melanoma. There is also coverage of the most recent data pertaining to surgical management, staging and prevention, and melanoma in children.
Emerging Cancer Therapeutics provides a thorough analysis of key clinical research related to cancer therapeutics, including a discussion and assessment of current evidence, current clinical best practice, and likely near future developments. There is an emphasis throughout on multidisciplinary approaches to the specialty, as well as on quality and outcomes analysis. Emerging Cancer Therapeutics provides authoritative, thorough assessments of advances in therapeutics in all major areas of oncology, both solid and hematologic malignancies, with a focus on advances in medical and biological therapies with emerging clinical impact and encompassing new technologies with implications for management such as molecular imaging.
