Prof Paul Lorigan - University of Manchester, Manchester, UK

Prof Lorrigan speaks with ecancertv at WCCS 2016 about the changing role of chemotherapy for metastatic melanoma.

Given the emergence of alternative therapies, he considers which tumour types and patient subgroups may be more or less responsive, and how to take chemotherapy into a changing field of targeted and combination therapies.

He also comments on the accelerated response of some patients, as discussed by Dr Dirk Schadendorf here.
