(This article belongs to the Special Issue Targeted Therapies for Melanoma)
The incidence of cutaneous malignant melanoma is increasing worldwide. Despite available modern therapeutical options, long-term survival of patients in advanced stages of the disease remains rather limited until now. Detailed insights into etiopathogenesis and mechanisms of tumour progression enable physicians to manipulate distinct molecular structures and pathways therapeutically and so treat the tumour. Unfortunately, the acquisition of therapeutic resistance frequently terminates these therapeutical interventions. The presented special issue is focusing on the research and therapeutic experience of leading scientists, and it summarises the state of the art of targeted therapy of melanoma and suggests the new perspectives of the treatment of disease.
