Interferon Gamma Isolated Limb Perfusion Melanoma Melphalan Tnf

Description

Patients with locally advanced melanoma confined to an extremity (Stage IIIA or Stage IIIAB) will be treated in a randomized Phase III study with hyperthermic isolated limb perfusion. One arm of the study will be a standard 60 minute perfusion with melphalan as a single agent. The second arm of the study will combine melphalan, tumor necrosis factor, and interferon-gamma in the isolated limb perfusion reproducing a regimen shown to have 100% response rates in a Phase II European trial. Patients will be followed for local response rates, duration of response, treatment toxicity, and disease-...
