The incidence of melanoma is rising at a virtually exponential pace. It is therefore fortunate and rather exciting that monumental developments have occurred involving methods of analyzing prognostic factors associated with melanoma, as well as new classes of medications that have proven effective in treating metastatic disease. These new tools in the armamentarium for melanoma evaluation and treatment represent significant advances and hopefully will translate into more appropriate patient selection, more effective treatment strategies, and reduced toxicity, resulting in prolonged survival and improved quality of life. Novel diagnostic tests, as well as new classes of medications including BRAF inhibitors, anti-CTLA 4 antibodies, and PD1 inhibitor therapy will be discussed in detail.
Alexander R Miller attended medical school and completed general surgical training at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.
