The treatment of melanoma is undergoing exciting advancements, as discussed here by Paolo Ascierto, MD, of the National Cancer Institute of Naples, Naples, Italy. Dr Ascierto highlights a promising area for further development: combination therapy. Speaking from the American Society of Oncology (ASCO) 2018 Annual Meeting in Chicago, IL, he highlights the different combinations to be considered.
