A Study To Assess The Safety Of Administering CP-675,206 As A One Hour Infusion In Patients With Surgically Incurable Advanced Melanoma
This will show if CP-675,206 can be administered safely as an intravenous infusion lasting one hour. CP 675,206 already has been administered to 835 subjects over 1.0 - 7.5 hours.
This study was prematurely discontinued on April 28, 2008 because a concomitant Phase 3 study met pre-specified futility criteria. The decision to close enrollment early was not based on any safety concerns.
Allocation: Non-Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
An unpigmented malignant melanoma. It is an anaplastic melanoma consisting of cells derived from melanoblasts but not forming melanin. (Dorland, 27th ed; Stedman, 25th ed)
Experimentally induced tumor that produces MELANIN in animals to provide a model for studying human MELANOMA.
Hutchinson's Melanotic Freckle
A cellular subtype of malignant melanoma. It is a pigmented lesion composed of melanocytes occurring on sun-exposed skin, usually the face and neck. The melanocytes are commonly multinucleated with a "starburst" appearance. It is considered by many to be the in situ phase of lentigo maligna melanoma.
Found in large amounts in the plasma and urine of patients with malignant melanoma. It is therefore used in the diagnosis of melanoma and for the detection of postoperative metastases. Cysteinyldopa is believed to be formed by the rapid enzymatic hydrolysis of 5-S-glutathionedopa found in melanin-producing cells.
A melanosome-specific protein that plays a role in the expression, stability, trafficking, and processing of GP100 MELANOMA ANTIGEN, which is critical to the formation of Stage II MELANOSOMES. The protein is used as an antigen marker for MELANOMA cells.
RATIONALE: Vaccines may make the body build an immune response to kill tumor cells. It is not yet known whether combining melanoma vaccine with interleukin-2 is more effective than vaccine...
The purpose of this study is to examine the health behaviors of melanoma survivors. We want to know about their thoughts and concerns. Melanoma is a type of skin cancer. The number of peop...
The purpose of this study is to determine if an experimental melanoma vaccine can produce an immune response in patients with metastatic melanoma, and if combining this vaccine with the d...
This phase I/II study is directed at evaluating safety and immunogenicity of a melanoma peptide vaccine in combination or not with Dacarbazine administration in melanoma patients
This is a Phase III study in patients with melanoma that has spread to the lymph nodes and/or a distant organ, and who have had all of their cancer surgically removed. The purpose of this...
In a mouse melanoma metastasis model it has been recently shown that ADAM15 overexpression in melanoma cells significantly reduced the number of metastatic nodules on the lung. Unfortunately, the expr...
Melanoma-associated retinopathy is a paraneoplastic retinopathy associated mostly with cutaneous melanoma. In most cases it presents months to years after diagnosis of primary cutaneous melanoma was m...
PURPOSE:: To evaluate prognostic factors based on origin of conjunctival melanoma. DESIGN:: Interventional case series. PARTICIPANTS:: Three hundred eighty-two consecutive patients. METHODS:: Retrospe...
The incidence of melanoma has continued to rise dramatically over the past few decades, especially in young females. Due to the deadly nature of this disease, melanoma has become an important public h...
Although melanoma has traditionally been regarded as a uniformly fatal malignancy, personalized treatment of this cancer relies on the recognition of its genetic heterogeneity and our ability to pharm...
