I think they do archive them Joe.  I'll let you know if they mention it during the seminar and where to find it.

Despite some internet connectivity issues I was able to view both presentations.  I thought they were both well done.  Keep in mind they are targeted toward medical professionals so a little on the technical side.  They actually qualify as continuing education credit for medical professionals, hence the questions that are asked during the presentation.  They both are about 45 - 50 minutes long.  My knowledge of the immunotherapy field is a little better than my knowledge of the targeted therapy field so I personally got a lot more out of immunotherapy presentation.

Jerry,  If you are reading this I think you will find the "Targeted Therapy in Melanoma" presentation very interesting.  Lots of information on the genetics and mutations of melanoma and current and future treatment options.  Being Braf negative I personally haven't followed this much but according to the presentation we may start to see targeted therapies for all types of mutations in the future.

These presentations will be archived soon at omedlive.com.  They are not there yet but should be under a "on demand" link sometime soon.

Thanks Brian, I look forward to checking these out soon.
