The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether treatment with a new drug called ZK-Epothilone (ZK-Epo) in patients with metastatic breast cancer helps to decrease or stop tumor growth.

Epothilones are a class of 16-membered macrolide compounds targeting microtubules. They have good anticancer activity and their mechanism of action is similar to that of paclitaxel. Epothilones are al...
Melanoma survivors are at risk to develop another melanoma and the same patterns of sun exposure that caused the initial melanoma contribute to the risk for a second melanoma. Despite awareness of the...
Early diagnosis of cutaneous melanoma is critical in preventing melanoma-associated deaths, but the role of primary care providers (PCPs) in diagnosing melanoma is underexplored. We aimed to explore t...
The incidence of melanoma in situ varies throughout the world. It is associated with excellent outcomes, however many of those untreated will go on to develop invasive melanoma with a worse prognosis....

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.
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.
