LONDON, May 18, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- There are only two FDA/EMEA approved drugs currently available for treating advanced melanoma. The available drugs, however, are not completely effective and have adverse effects. Unmet needs of patients, especially those with advanced melanoma are therefore quite high and have led to a low drug adoption and market growth over the years. The future looks brighter though, with a few promising drugs in pipeline for advanced melanoma.


In its upcoming web conference taking place on Tuesday, 25th May 2010, at 3 p.m. GMT Frost Sullivan will focus on the European Melanoma Skin Cancer Market. Industry Analyst, Ranjith Gopinathan, will present an analysis of latest trends and developments in the market, competitive factors as well as challenges and strategic recommendations.
