Hello Friends:

Can someone help me understand the significance or lack there of of being BRAF negative or BRAF positive as it relates to melanoma prognosis.

Sending hugs to all.  Thanks in advance!

It is not a new link but explains braf status clearly. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZBcRHFGTyGs

In addition to Ed's link about these may help - 

Old but still accurate although now there are more BRAF targeted drugs:

This post addresses BRAF/targeted therapy as well as treatment for melanoma generally:
