Molecular Diagnostics Separate Malignant from Benign Melanocytic Tumors

Jeong Hee Cho-Vega, M.D., Ph.D., a skin cancer expert at Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, and colleagues have shown that a relatively simple, multi-step molecular diagnostic algorithm can help determine whether rare, atypical spitzoid tumors are benign spitz nevi or malignant melanomas. This new protocol could ensure that patients receive the right therapies to match the severity of their tumors. The study was published in the journal Modern Pathology. ... Full story

IBM announces two new partnerships with Melanoma Institute Australia and MoleMap to advance research in melanoma identification

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA - IBM Research in Australia has announced plans to undertake research with Melanoma Institute Australia to help further advance the identification of melanoma using cognitive technology. This planned research builds on IBM’s existing research agreement with Molemap, which uses advanced visual analytics to analyse more than 40,000 data sets including images and text. IBM Research plans to analyse dermatological images of skin lesions to help identify specific clinical patterns in the early stages of melanoma1. The Australian research aims to help reduce unnecessary biopsies and help clinicians more accurately understand skin cancer, which could help to improve patient care. ... Full story
