In treating patients with resectable melanoma, the introduction of effective systemic therapies has dramatically improved our ability to reduce patient’s risk of recurrence and therefore to improve their survival.
Moderated by Dr David Gyorki, VCCC Research & Education Lead for Melanoma and Skin Cancers, this webinar will explain the rationale for the use of systemic therapy in a neoadjuvant setting and highlight emerging data around efficacy, toxicity and prognostic biomarkers.
