Suggest treatment for metastatic melanoma

Posted on Thu, 25 May 2017
Question: Can you give me info on the new, so called, wonder treatment for metastatic melanoma H 86?
There are glowing reports, but I am always suspicious of these grand announcements.
Would you recommend it when the regular treatments of Pembro then Yorvoy appear unsuccessful?
Thank you.

Brief Answer:
It has not been tested in clinical trials

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I understand your concern. Unfortunately, H86 has not gone through clinical trials and has not been approved by the FDA, therefore it is very hard to say whether it is an effective anti cancer drug or not. As of yet it remains in the internet hearsay domain.
I hope this answers your question.
I you have any further questions I'd be happy to answer.
All the best
