Abstract

PURPOSE OF REVIEW To outline the most urgent challenges in the management of advanced melanoma. RECENT FINDINGS Considerable progress in targeted and immunotherapy of advanced melanoma has opened a perspective for a cure if all molecular and medical information is integrated in a rational precision treatment algorithm. SUMMARY Bioinformatics and system biology approaches will be needed to deal with omics databases. The support of patient advocacy groups may help to increase the acceptance of large scale, routine biobanking.
