BRAF, MEK and KIT point mutations are widely known for inducing resistance to targeted therapy in systemic treatment of advanced cutaneous melanoma. To explain this phenomenon different mechanisms are proposed, including tumoral genomic heterogeneity, both in primary and metastatic tumors. We have previously tested the heterogeneity hypothesis in primary cutaneous melanomas (acral lenti...
Cutaneous melanoma is a malignant neoplasm arising from the uncontrolled proliferation of melanocytes skin. The acral lentiginous melanoma occurs in places not exposed to solar radiation, palms, soles and subungual areas, is more common in Asian and African descent, accounting for 2-3% of all melanoma cases. Studies that evaluate the signaling pathways in melanoma progression of this ty...
Melanoma has its initiation in malignance transformation of melanocytes. Acral lentiginous melanoma (ALM) subtype was once thought to occur more often in more darkly pigmented races and it was also thought to have a more aggressive biologic nature than other subtypes. As the name implies, ALM occurs on acral surfaces, specifically the palms, soles, and nails. Genetics characteristics of...
