Yes, melanoma is fascinating to researchers because it is so immune responsive. There are some very interesting studies going on!

Here in Australia they have also discovered that a beta blocker that is already widely available cuts of blood supply to melanoma’s comforting to know that our scientists seem to be really going gun ho on research here for a cure!

Can we know which beta blocker? It would be helpful, no? I mean, its available in drug stores now and we can't know what it is? How about saving lives and transforming melanoma into a chronic disease???

I believe it is propranolol. I plan to ask my oncologist the next time I see him.
