The Process of Chemotherapy

Chemotherapy uses drugs that kill cancer cells. The drugs are usually injected into a vein or taken by mouth as a pill.

Metastatic Melanoma is a Challenging Malignancy to Treat Historically. Until 2011, only dacarbazine and high-dose interleukin 2 (IL-2) were approved for the treatment of metastatic disease. These therapies are not active in melanoma and with the advances in immunotherapy and targeted treatment, chemotherapy is not used as frequently.
