Episode #164 / Mar 3, 2010
The best way to fight skin cancer is to prevent it before it occurs (i.e., sun prevention). But what about if a melanoma does strike? Exciting news emerged this week about a new melanoma combating trial drug named PLX 4032. Dr. Schultz discusses this drug and what it means.

How do I find out about plx4032 for treatment of melanoma. Can a patient be part of the trial. My daughter's father melanoma has spread to his lungs.
We are desperate!

@leslie: Discuss this with your daughter's father's oncologist who may be able to enter him into a clinical trial. Regardless, I'm sorry to hear about this.
