An observational, non-interventional registry study to collect real-world data from people living with melanoma and its treatment, which will be available to researchers to further the kno...
Study of late physical, psychological and social effects in patients treated with ipilimumab for advanced (stage IV or unresectable stage III) melanoma.
A study in melanoma patients with involvement of lymph nodes or disease that has spread who have undergone complete removal and are eligible for added treatment with nivolumab
This study will be conducted with the aim of estimating the effectiveness, safety, patterns of use of nivolumab, and characteristics of patients with unresectable or metastatic melanoma, t...
A one year interventional study to test the safety and tolerability of monthly basis intravitreal injection of ranibizumab combined with Transpupillary Thermo Therapy + ICG-based photodyna...
Despite improvements in melanoma mortality, disparities in melanoma survival persist. We evaluated possible sociodemographic and healthcare-based predictors of differences in U.S. melanoma survival us...
We aim to define the practice of interventional radiology (IR) in Canada, barriers that have been faced by interventional radiologists, and ways in which the Canadian Interventional Radiology Associat...
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 evidence-based national clinical practice guidelines for the management of cutaneous melanoma published in 2008 are currently being updated. This article summarises the findings from multiple chap...
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)
Minimally invasive procedures, diagnostic or therapeutic, performed within the BLOOD VESSELS. They may be perfomed via ANGIOSCOPY; INTERVENTIONAL MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; INTERVENTIONAL RADIOGRAPHY; or INTERVENTIONAL ULTRASONOGRAPHY.
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.
