Episode Info

Episode Info:

Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer worldwide. It is usually caused by excessive exposure to sunlight or other sources of ultraviolet light, such as tanning beds. The rarest but deadliest form of skin cancer is melanoma, which is aggressive and can spread rapidly if not detected and treated early.

Newer targeted treatments like immunotherapy have emerged in recent years and appear to be not only more effective than conventional therapy but also better tolerated, because unlike chemotherapy and radiation, these newer approaches are designed to kill cancer cells without damaging healthy ones.

In this fascinating segment, Igor Puzanov, MD, MSCI, FACP, Chief of Melanoma, Director of the Early Phase Clinical Trials Program, discusses the latest advances and the new combination treatment for advanced Melanoma.
