Momrn5 just posted this link to what she correctly refered to as the "Melanoma Therapy Finder".
Indeed, this online tool can help you find various treatment options for melanoma, the manufacturer and whether or not it is FDA approved. Thanks, Momrn5! Great catch!
But what's even better (and the reason I am posting this again here) is that it is also an interactive clinical trial finder! You can enter your melanoma stage, location of mets and your GENE MUTATIONS and it will present you with a list of possible clinical trials. If you choose BRAF mutation, it will also ask you if you have already taken a BRAF inhibitor and then present you only with clinical trials for those who had BRAF inhibitors. If you are presented with a long list, you can click on the name of the study drug (like MEK162, for example) and it will sort the list to show all the MEK162 trials as a group.
This is exactly what I was suggesting in a post last week suggesting that we lobby for a better clinical trial finder than clinicaltrials.gov.
Thank you to Drs. David Fisher and Keith Flaherty and their team for creating this wonderful tool and to Momrn5 for bringing it to our attention. I strongly suggest that MIF add a link to this site on their "Resources" page.
