The purpose of this study is to evaluate a specific cellular immune response in melanoma patients that have been vaccinated with a Melan-A VLP vaccine alone or in combination with differen...
The purpose of this study is to monitor a specific cellular immune response in melanoma patients at an early stage of the disease, that have been vaccinated with a Melan-A VLP vaccine.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether vaccination with a Melan-A VLP vaccine leads to a specific cellular immune response in patients with malignant melanoma at advanced stage o...
The purpose of this research study is to find out whether JX-594 is safe and effective for treating surgically unresectable malignant melanoma.
The purpose of this project is to analyze tumour tissue from a group of subjects with malignant melanoma, who have been treated at the Royal Marsden Hospital.
Primary pineal malignant melanoma is a rare type of primary central nervous system melanoma with only 19 cases reported in the literature.
We previously identified ovostatin 2 (OVOS2) as a new candidate gene for cutaneous malignant melanoma (CMM) in a Chinese population. In this study, we aimed to investigate the exact role of OVOS2 in c...
Gall bladder polyps larger than 10 mm hold an increased risk of malignancy. In this case report, a metastasis from a superficial spreading malignant melanoma level IV presented as a large gall bladder...
There is an ongoing debate whether solarium use (indoor tanning/artificial UV) may increase the risk for primary cutaneous malignant melanoma.
Circular RNAs (circRNAs) has been found to play an important role in the regulation of multiple diseases, and participate in cancer development. However, the role of circRNA in malignant melanoma has ...
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)
Tumors of the iris characterized by increased pigmentation of melanocytes. Iris nevi are composed of proliferated melanocytes and are associated with neurofibromatosis and malignant melanoma of the choroid and ciliary body. Malignant melanoma of the iris often originates from preexisting nevi.
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.
Clinically atypical nevi (usually exceeding 5 mm in diameter and having variable pigmentation and ill defined borders) with an increased risk for development of non-familial cutaneous malignant melanoma. Biopsies show melanocytic dysplasia. Nevi are clinically and histologically identical to the precursor lesions for melanoma in the B-K mole syndrome. (Stedman, 25th ed)

A vaccine is a biological preparation that improves immunity to a particular disease. A vaccine typically contains an agent that resembles a disease-causing microorganism, and is often made from weakened or killed forms of the microbe, its toxins or one ...
There are three main types of skin cancer: basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and malignant melanoma. Basal cell carcinoma Basal cell carcinoma, or BCC, is a cancer of the basal cells at the bottom of the epidermis. It’s very common ...
