After yelling about it for the past TEN years!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - I am so glad that more and more effective adjuvant therapies (treatment given when all signs of gross melanoma has been removed either by surgery or radiation) are available for Stage III and IV melanoma patients!!! Still, it can all get pretty confusing real quick. So - this morning I put together a post that tries to pull it all together. It begins with links to the PRIMER I created that covers all current treatments for melanoma and a glossary of terms as well an article that pretty much does the same thing. Next, there is a written story of the development of adjuvant care in melanoma with pertinent links. It concludes with the story in visual form, via slides and link to a presentation made by a world renowned expert in melanoma. I hope it helps.
