FROM MOMENTUM: Study suggests personalized treatment for deadly skin cancer

Melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer and incredibly difficult to treat successfully once the tumor has spread beyond the skin.

But the identification of a key player in a signaling pathway involved in melanoma development may offer hope for new targeted melanoma therapies.

Dr. Ann Richmond and colleagues at Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center report that a signaling molecule, known as IKKβ, is essential for melanoma tumor development in a mouse model of the disease. The results, published June 7 in the Journal of Clinical Investigation, also point to ways of targeting therapies that inhibit IKKβ toward the patients most likely to benefit from them based on their genetic profile.
