[MOL] Mellanoma Treatment



Low Dose for Melanoma

The same drug that was recently shown to
improve survival rates in skin cancer
patients now appears to work in smaller
doses -- and with fewer side effects.
French researchers at the Hospital Ste.
Marguerite in Marseilles treated half of
their 500 melanoma patients with low doses
of interferon. Three years after the start
of the study, those patients who had
received the drug had lower rates of tumor
recurrence than those who had not. (Source:
The Lancet)

The number of new cases of skin cancer rises
each year. To lower your risk of melanoma,
avoid overexposure to the sun.
