Dr Ribero speaks with ecancer at EADO 2017 about the prognostic and diagnostic value of histologic regression in predicting and tracking immune response to skin cancers.

He notes improved tumour infiltration by patients with regressed melanoma, and considers how this may guide immunotherapy treatments in the future.

Dr Ribero also raises discussion about the role of nevi in regression.
