        Thanks for the links!

        That book looks really interesting. I found a lengthy review here:http:// http://www.newyorker.com/arts/critics/books/2010/11/08/101108crbo_books_shapin (Worth reading on its own merit, but maybe a bit over the top at some places.)

            Wow, the line "turning melanoma into a chonic disease."  sounds so good.. :)

            I'm BRAF+ so this was great to hear. Thanks for the post.

            Hopefully they'll soon figure this stuff out.

                Emily,

                 

                Thanks for posting this article, it's great to hear they are getting closer to figuring this out. My husband actually said a year ago that wouldn't it be great if it was just a chronic disease you could live with like aids. Not that anyone wants either.

                 

                Thanks for the information.

                    Liked the article on mutation…We visit Dr. Lo at UCLA every few months and had this discussion with him last month.  I was waiting for his publication.  He is one of the better Dermatologists we have had!
