This is a two center, single arm, investigator sponsored trail (IST) with the PET tracer 89Zr-pembrolizumab to evaluate in vivo whole body distribution of 89Zr-Pembrolizumab in a registere...
This study will employ a phase Ib design using the established dose of CAVATAK with pembrolizumab in subjects with advanced melanoma for whom pembrolizumab would be considered standard of ...
Studies have shown that the study drug, pembrolizumab, works by helping the immune system. In this way, pembrolizumab may help to slow the growth of melanoma or may cause cancer cells to d...
This study will assess the safety, tolerability, and efficacy of every-3-week dosing (Q3W) of pembrolizumab in participants with advanced melanoma; participants may receive pembrolizumab f...
This pilot trial studies the side effects and how well imiquimod and pembrolizumab work in treating patients with stage IIIB-IV melanoma. Imiquimod may stimulate the immune system. Monoclo...
Immune checkpoint inhibitors led to major advances in melanoma therapy, and pembrolizumab (anti-PD-1 monoclonal antibody) is now a new standard of treatment for advanced melanoma. The aim of this work...
The peripheral blood lymphocyte-to-monocyte ratio (LMR) has been associated with prognosis in many malignancies including metastatic melanoma. However, it has not been studied in patients treated with...
The aim of this study was to assess the cost-effectiveness of pembrolizumab in treating patients with ipilimumab-naïve advanced melanoma in Portugal.
To describe the presentation and management of severe ocular adverse events following treatment with pembrolizumab for cutaneous metastatic melanoma.
To evaluate the protocol-specified final analysis of overall survival (OS) in the KEYNOTE-002 study (NCT01704287) of pembrolizumab versus chemotherapy in patients with ipilimumab-refractory, advanced ...
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.
