Scientists looking for new treatments for patients with brain tumors, including those caused by metastatic melanoma, have turned to an unlikely source: a deadly tropical virus. The virus, called Lassa, causes a deadly hemorrhagic fever endemic to West Africa. A team of cancer scientists from Yale and Harvard are altering part of the virus's genetic code, combining it with a different virus, and injecting it into the human brain where they hope it can be used to find and destroy cancer cells.

On December 16, Array BioPharma announced its new cancer drug, binimetinib, showed success in stage 3 clinical trials. According to the drug company, binimetinib may be used to treat people with advanced NRAS-mutant melanoma, a particularly deadly form of skin cancer. The trial showed that the drug extended the time it takes for cancer to grow and spread.

Indoor tanning ban aimed at reducing skin cancer rates in minors. On December 18, in a sweeping move in the fight against skin cancer, the FDA proposed a national ban on indoor tanning for people under the age of 18. Medical experts have called the move an important step in reducing the risk of skin cancer in the United States.

A handful of different treatment options are available for patients with Kaposi sarcoma. Treatment options are largely determined by the type of Kaposi sarcoma, the overall health of the patient, and whether the disease is being diagnosed for the first time or if it has come back after initial treatments.

Kaposi sarcoma is rare type of cancer that causes tumors to form in the skin; mucous membranes lining the mouth, nose, and throat; lymph nodes; or other organs. Tumors caused by Kaposi sarcoma are usually purple and are made of cancer cells, new blood vessels, red blood cells, and white blood cells. Most cancers begin in one part of the body and spread to others; in the case Kaposi sarcoma, lesions may begin in more than one place in the body at the same time.

Skin lymphoma is a rare type of cancer that originates in white blood cells in the skin. Lymphoma is a type of cancer that develops in white blood cells called lymphocytes. Lymphocytes are an integral part of the body’s immune system. They are found in lymph nodes, which are small clusters of immune tissue located at various locations throughout the body, as well as in other areas of the body, such as the bone marrow, spleen, and other organs, including the skin.
