A review of data from three large, prospective studies examined a potential association between alcoholic beverage consumption and risk of melanoma.
Despite the effectiveness of dabrafenib in combination with trametinib for metastatic BRAF-mutant melanoma, many patients experience disease progression that often leads to death. In this data analysis, researcher sought to identify clinical factors associated with long-term response and survival.
Atlhough survival for patients with advanced melanoma is similar with both targeted therapies and immunotherapies, a review of the literature reveals why one of them may be a better choice as first-line therapy.
Neurotoxicity is not uncommon in patients with melanoma treated with immune checkpoint inhibitors. In this study, therefore, researchers sought to examine the incidence of neurotoxicity across anti-CTLA-4 and anti-PD-1 antibodies at a single institution.
More melanomas are self-detected by women; men tend to have more melanomas in less visible locations.
A newly developed, evidence-based psychoeducational intervention effectively reduced fear of cancer recurrence and stress in patients at high risk for developing another melanoma.
Organ transplant recipients of all races/ethnicities are at higher risk for skin cancer, therefore routine, annual total-body skin cancer screenings should be a part of post organ transplant care.
Treatment with pembrolizumab better maintained health-related quality of life compared with chemotherapy in patients with advanced melanoma refractory to ipilimumab.

Training Primary Care Providers to Screen for Melanoma Increases Diagnoses, With Little Affect on Dermatology Visits or Skin SurgeriesJuly 21, 2016
Training primary care providers (PCP) to detect early melanoma led to increased melanoma diagnoses, but had little impact on skin surgeries or dermatology visits.
De novo melanomas, which arise from clinically normal skin with no associated nevus, may be more aggressive than nevus-associated melanomas.
In addition to improving overall survival compared with dacarbazine in patients with advanced melanoma, nivolumab maintains baseline levels of health-related quality of life to ultimately confer long-term quality of survival benefit.
Exaggerated sensitivity to harmless light, or photosensitization, is often triggered by photodynamic therapy used to treat precancerous skin lesions and skin cancers.
Population-based screening for melanoma performed by primary care providers does not cause substantial harm with respect to skin surgeries and dermatology visits.
