MoleGazer: A Feasibility Study for Early Detection of Melanoma

Melanoma (skin cancer) frequently develops from existing moles on the skin. Current practice relies on expert dermatologists being able to successfully identify new/changing moles in individuals with multiple moles. Total body photography (TBP-high-quality images of the entire skin) can track and monitor moles over time to detect melanoma.However, TBP is currently used as a visual guide when diagnosing melanoma, requiring visual inspection of each mole sequentially. This process is challenging, time-consuming and inefficient. Artificial [...]

The SCOPE Study: A Phase 2, Multicentre, Open-Label Study of SCIB1 in Patients with Advanced Unresectable Melanoma Receiving Either Nivolumab with Ipilimumab or Pembrolizumab

DANTE: Duration of Anti-PD1 therapy for melanoma

This trial aims to determine whether anti-PD1 monotherapy to treat advanced melanoma can be stopped after 1 year, rather than the current standard practice (i.e. continuing to treat until disease progression/unacceptable toxicity, or for at least 2 years), and achieve and maintain as good an outcome (in terms of the cancer coming back). The hypothesis is that continuing treatment beyond 1 year is unnecessary, as there is no biological evidence that justifies continuous therapy; [...]

TEBENTAFUSP: Tebentafusp Managed Access Program for Metastatic Uveal Melanoma

Uveal melanoma (UM) is a rare and highly malignant neoplasm affecting the vascular layers of the eye (iris, ciliary body, or choroid). Once patients develop metastases, primarily to the liver, the prognosis is poor with a median survival of less than 12 months. There are no effective treatments for metastatic UM that extend survival, and there is no proven standard of care. Enrollment in clinical trials is the treatment option recommended by the UK [...]

MAAM Study: The use of Microwave Ablation in the treatment of advanced melanoma with cutaneous metastases. An observational study using Emblation's microwave based treatment system SwiftTM

This is a pilot study to establish if MWA can successfully treat metastatic melanoma deposits using the Swift device manufactured by Emblation. As a control group, they will also test whether MWA can treat other skin lesions where standard surgical management is not recommended (including other skin cancer metastases, viral warts). The hypothesis is that precise directed delivery of microwave energy onto a melanoma deposit will lead to its destruction. In this biomarker [...]
