Adjuvant therapy in advanced melanoma | 28 min
Adjuvant therapy in advanced melanomaAdvancements made in medical oncology in the metastatic setting are now being used to benefit melanoma patients with Stage III disease. In this podcast, Medical Oncologist A/Prof Menzies is interviewed by A/Prof Carlino on how adjuvant (postoperative) therapy is being used in melanoma to eradicate occult metastatic disease to reduce the chances of recurrence. They discuss the role of immunotherapy and targeted therapy in the adjuvant setting, and mention how systemic therapy is being trialled in the neoadjuvant (preoperative) space.
This podcast is suitable medical oncologists, surgical oncologists and radiation oncologists, and may also be of interest to GPs, oncology nurses and other healthcare practitioners.
