I recently read an article on MSNBC about a new drug that appears to be promising for treatment of melanoma. The drug is called PLX4032. It is designed to block a genetic mutation in a cellular pathway that is common in most cases of melanoma. You can read the full article here http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/31043939.
For more information on the clinical study provided by Drugs.com, you can read more here http://www.drugs.com/clinical_trials/plexxikon-announces-plx4032-phase-1-data-showing-objective-responses-metastatic-melanoma-patients-7413.html.
