Melanoma Clinician Resources

For decades, doctors and researchers have conducted clinical trials to further progress in the clinical implementation of tumor immunotherapy. Former President Jimmy Carter’s success with immunotherapy for advanced melanoma and Vice President Joe Biden’s Cancer Moonshot Initiative have brought this new treatment type, as well as cancer treatments in general, into the spotlight for the general public. As a result, health care professionals may experience a spike in inquiries about this new treatment.

Several immunotherapy agents are now available for melanoma. Although surgery often remains the first line of treatment, especially for early-stage melanomas, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is rapidly approving new immunotherapy medications for advanced melanoma.
