    Hi to all.

    I`m very glad, because i found this site. I found here many information about melanoma. It is very important that many people are struggling with it, and win!

    So, i want to ask for help for my friend. He has metastatic melanoma (metastases in the lungs) now. It was found in july 2013. Primary melanoma has been removed 09/2010.

    We live in Russia. He has treated by Dacarbazine+Lomustine+Cisplatin (two courses).

    Some time ago, we learned about trials of new drugs in Russia (like MK-3475 or others).

    I have found site “http://clinicaltrials.gov/“, but now there are no trials by MK-3475 in Russia (http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/results?term=melanoma+russia&pg=1).

    Please, help us to find recruting trials of new drugs for metastatic melanoma (4 stage) in Russia. Maybe someone has information about this trials, or about sites with information about trials in Russia? Or site clinicaltrials.gov

    Let God help us all.

    How close are you to Riga, Latvia?

    There’s a clinic there that treats melanoma patients using something called virotherapy. I can’t vouch for how well it works but it may be worth looking into.

    Here’s a medical study about it in Russian: http://www.virotherapy.eu/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/result.pdf” class=”bbcode_url”>http://www.virotherapy.eu/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/result.pdf

    And here’s another study in English: http://www.virotherapy.eu/wp-content/uploads/clinical-pub/enpu.pdf” class=”bbcode_url”>http://www.virotherapy.eu/wp-content/uploads/clinical-pub/enpu.pdf

    I know nothing of scientific value of what LInny suggested above. However, there are many trials, including the IPI/PD1 combo trial available in nearby countries, including Germany, Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic and France. Please check these out as viable therapies.
