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.

Immunotherapy refers to a type of cancer treatment that attempts to stimulate the body's immune system to attack and kill cancer cells. The immune system is the body's natural defense against germs and disease. The main components of the immune system are the organs, tissues, and fluids that make up the lymph system—including white blood cells. White blood cells, such as T cells, are the substances that actually attack and kill germs or other unhealthy substances, such as cancer cells.

Melanoma is a type of skin cancer caused by damage to the DNA of melanocyte cells in the skin. Melanocytes produce melanin, a pigment in skin that is primarily responsible for skin color. When melanocytes DNA is damaged, it may cause the cells to mutate—leading to rapid, uncontrolled growth and the formation of malignant tumors. The goal of immunotherapy for cancer is to overcome these barriers to an effective anticancer immune response. These biological therapies restore or increase the activities of specific immune-system components or counteract immunosuppressive signals produced by cancer cells.
