Melanoma

Melanoma is a dangerous form of skin cancer that is relatively common. The risk factors for developing melanoma may include some of the following:

 

  • Living in sunny climates
  • Long-term exposure to high levels of strong sunlight
  • Blistering sunburns during childhood
  • Use of tanning booths
  • Close relatives with a history of melanoma
  • Exposure to carcinogens
  • Certain types of moles
  • Weakened immune system

Melanoma and Live Cell Therapy

One study on immune modulation using thymus gland extract was performed on a group of patients with early stage melanoma. Interestingly, there were no significant benefits seen regarding the immune reaction to the cancer or in a lengthening of the disease-free period. This study did show that the overall survival rate was nearly twice as long compared to melanoma patients who did not use thymus extract.
