My husband got his test results back today. He has mucosal melanoma (sinus) with metastases in lungs and liver. He is negative for braf and c-kit. The doctor now suggests ABI-007 trial: Abraxane versus Dacarbazine. I can't really find any information besides the trial information. Is anyone on that trial? It doesn't sound very promising. I don't understand why I never read in forums about it. Please if, anyone is on that trial or knows more about it,. let me know!
