I was Stage III when first diagnosed in 2004. I went to Sloan to look into clinical trials since I didn't get any good information about the benefits of interferon. I ended up in a vaccine trial at U of Penn and then went to Stage IV. There I went on to a trial of Nexavar/Temodar and am now NED 5 years later. My advice is to look for a clinical trial. It can not hurt and at least keeps you involved with the latest in treatment options. Look at Sloan, U Penn and other institutions that are on the cutting edge of Mel research.
