Melanoma and Brain Metastases: Can Immunotherapy Cure a Disease that Arises in the Skin and Kills in the Brain?

  • When September 11 , 2015, 1 p.m. to 2 p.m.
  • Who Kim A. Margolin, MD

    Adjunct Clinical Professor, Medical Oncology, Stanford University, Palo Alto, California

  • Where Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute, M106
    2 Riverside Circle, Roanoke, VA 24016

Dr. Margolin will discuss a series of protocols that address the problem of brain metastases in cutaneous melanoma. This common event causes more morbidity and mortality from melanoma than from any other tumor, and it is the immediate or major contributing cause of death in a higher percentage of cutaneous melanoma patients than any other site of metastatic disease or disease complication. Better understanding of the biology of this event will inform ongoing and future investigations, which will in turn complement current immunotherapy strategies to improve patient outcomes.
