Researchers have revealed that the expression of a specific isoform of GREB1 Is4 is induced in malignant melanoma cells by the melanocyte-specific transcription factor, MITF. They revealed that GREB1 Is4 stimulates pyrimidine biosynthesis and ...
A new study examines why people living in Atlantic regions are more at-risk for developing melanoma than other Canadians, providing lessons on skin cancer prevention for the whole country. To find ...
The administration of ranolazine, a drug currently used to treat heart conditions, improves the efficacy of current therapies for melanoma, in mouse models of this ...
Investigators have designed an innovative RNA-based strategy to activate dendritic cells--which play a key role in immune response -- that eradicated tumors and prevented their recurrence in mouse models of melanoma. The findings suggest that the ...

Scientists have identified potential new biomarkers that could indicate how someone diagnosed with metastatic melanoma will respond to immunotherapy ...

Fewer cases of melanoma were observed among regular users of vitamin D supplements than among non-users, a new study finds. People taking vitamin D supplements regularly also had a considerably lower ...

Researchers have used artificial DNA to target and kill cancer cells in a completely new way. The method was effective in lab tests against human cervical cancer- and breast cancer-derived cells, and ...

A new study examined the combination of the common immunotherapy drug pembrolizumab (Keytruda) with all-trans retinoic acid (ATRA), a chemotherapy drug that targets myeloid-derived suppressor cells. ...

A patient's own immune cells, multiplied into an army of billions of immune cells in a lab, can be used as a living medicine against metastatic melanoma, an aggressive form of skin cancer, as ...

Researchers have identified a new method for scheduling radiation therapy that could be as much as 22 percent more effective at killing cancer cells than current standard radiation treatment ...


Researchers have developed and validated a machine learning--based method to predict which patients with early-stage melanoma are most likely to experience a cancer ...

A new way of reprogramming our immune cells to shrink or kill off cancer cells has been shown to work in the otherwise hard to treat and devastating skin cancer, melanoma. The discovery demonstrates ...

A clinical trial showed a remarkable 20 percent advantage in the two-year overall survival rate for people with advanced melanoma who first received immunotherapy (72 percent survival rate) versus ...

The advent of small-molecule targeted therapies, a decade ago, revolutionized the treatment of metastatic melanoma, provided that the tumors carry the mutations to respond to these treatments. ...

Scientists have shown how tumor cells evade immunotherapy by generating unique, temporary cell-in-cell structures, where the inner cells remain in tact and can return to single tumor ...

Researchers have deciphered a mechanism that enables skin cancer to metastasize to the brain and managed to delay the spread of the disease by 60% to 80% using existing ...


Currently, the only FDA approved biomarker for ICI melanoma treatment is the tumor mutation burden assay, but the mechanisms linking it to ICI remain unclear. However, new research now provides ...

Over the last decade, immune checkpoint blockers, or ICBs, have revolutionized treatment for various advanced cancers, including melanoma, the most aggressive skin cancer that was considered largely ...

Researchers have shown that inhibiting a key metabolic enzyme selectively kills melanoma cells and stops tumor growth. The findings could lead to a new class of drugs to selectively treat melanoma, ...

Medical researchers report on their identification of high-risk patients with stage 3A disease and microscopic lymph node metastases who would benefit from adjuvant ...

Researchers developed a lipid nanoparticle-delivered cancer vaccine against a mouse model of melanoma that specifically targets the lymph system to generate greater potency. They were able to achieve ...

Researchers have identified several proteins involved in the progression of melanoma. One of the proteins -- PDIA6 -- was found to be particularly important for driving malignancy. Experiments with ...

Assessing the thickness of melanoma is difficult, whether done by an experienced dermatologist or a well-trained machine-learning algorithm. A study shows that the algorithm and the dermatologists ...

Cancer researchers have completed one of the most comprehensive studies of the cells inside melanoma brain ...
