Notes and Special Information
Special note: As with any treatments, there can be setbacks in research and not every person will respond to the medication. Nothing on this site should be considered medical advice or a substitute from treatment by a professional with firsthand knowledge of your case. RG7204 is said to reduce metastatic melanoma by up to 80% and comes in pill form. A patient's mutated gene, known as BRAF, is found by the drug and shrinks the tumors when the drug is used. According to scientists, this drug may be available in the year 2012, but you should ask your doctor whether there are any clinical trials of RG7204 before that date.
