New Drug MAY Extend the Lives Of Melanoma Patients

Posted Sep 21 2009 10:13pm

Roche has conducted a Phase II clinical trial that shows the lives of melanoma patients can be extended several months on their new drug Avastin. http://www.reuters.com/article/healthNews/idUSTRE58K1KS20090921?feedType=RSS&feedName=healthNews&rpc=22&sp=true

Though this is a great step forward, death doesn't have to be an option when it comes to melanoma. The key is early detection. Everyone over the age of 45 needs to see a dermatologist (not their family physician) every year for a full body examination.
