RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die.
OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the therapeutic activity of E7070 in terms of objective response, duration of response, and progression-free survival of patients with metastatic melanoma. II. Determine the acute side effects of this drug in these patients. III. Determine the pharmacokinetic parameters of this drug in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study. Patients receive E7070 IV over 1 hour. Treatment repeats every 3 weeks in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients are followed every 6 weeks.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 19-24 patients will be accrued for this study.
Primary Purpose: Treatment

The proposed study is a continuation of a research program (STU00017005: Interventions to teach melanoma patients skin self-examination) designed to increase early detection of melanomas b...
We will do systematic and functional assessment of non-melanoma skin cancer including precancerous lesions by OCT imaging and other diagnostic methods. The systematic assessment will be co...
RATIONALE: New diagnostic procedures, such as bioelectric field imaging, may help find and diagnose melanoma and other skin cancers. It may also be a less invasive way to check for skin ca...
The overall purpose of this study is to determine the efficacy, safety and tolerability of indisulam in combination with irinotecan as a treatment for patients with metastatic colorectalca...
Melanoma is a cutaneous malignancy that has the potential for local (skin) and regional (lymph node) recurrence. These recurrences may be difficult to detect in their earliest stages. We ...
Indisulam possesses anticancer properties through down-regulation of various cell-cycle checkpoint molecules, thereby blocking the phosphorylation of retinoblastoma protein and inducing p53 and p21. I...
Vitiligo is a chronic disorder causing skin depigmentation with around 1% global prevalence, affecting people of all ages, skin types and genders. Due to the absence of melanin in lesional skin there ...
Although literature demonstrates a decreased risk of Alzheimer's disease (AD) in individuals with various cancers, including squamous cell cancers (SCC) and basal cell cancers (BCC) comprising non-mel...
Treatment of digital skin cancers is challenging due to various functional and cosmetic implications. Traditionally, routine treatment includes radical amputation, but digital skin cancers are increas...
The association between Parkinson's disease (PD) and melanoma is well recognized, but its relationship with non-melanoma skin cancers has not been studied in depth.
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)
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.
Soft tissue tumors or cancer arising from the mucosal surfaces of the LIP; oral cavity; PHARYNX; LARYNX; and cervical esophagus. Other sites included are the NOSE and PARANASAL SINUSES; SALIVARY GLANDS; THYROID GLAND and PARATHYROID GLANDS; and MELANOMA and non-melanoma skin cancers of the head and neck. (from Holland et al., Cancer Medicine, 4th ed, p1651)
Experimentally induced tumor that produces MELANIN in animals to provide a model for studying human 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.
In a clinical trial or interventional study, participants receive specific interventions according to the research plan or protocol created by the investigators. These interventions may be medical products, such as drugs or devices; procedures; or change...

Melanoma is a highly malignant tumor of melanin-forming cells (melanocytes) There are most commonly found in the skin (resulting from sunlight exposure), but also in the eyes and mucous membranes. Metastasis to other regions of the body is also common....
