After many years with few advances several new, targeted and biologic therapies have completed evaluation in clinical trials since 2011. These new treatments have demonstrated improved outcomes for individuals with advanced melanoma leading to their approval by the FDA.  Individuals with advanced melanoma now have numerous treatment options.  Additional clinical studies are ongoing in order to determine the best way to use these new drugs in sequence or in  combination therapy and they are also being evaluated in individuals with earlier stage III disease to reduce the risk of a melanoma recurrence.
