Medications are available that can slow the progression of melanoma. However, not all melanomas respond, and the side effects sometimes outweigh the benefits.
That’s why researchers are working hard to develop more options—like those under investigation in our clinical research program.
On this page you’ll find information about melanoma clinical trials in general, the current treatment landscape, and active clinical trials for melanoma, including stage III (stage 3) melanoma and stage IV (stage 4) melanoma (also called advanced or metastatic melanoma).
Watch our short video to find out more about melanoma and why we are conducting clinical research into the condition.
