Dolcera Report: Interferon for the treatment of Melanoma


Melanoma is a serious type of skin cancer. It begins in cells called melanocytes that make melanin, which gives skin its color. If the skin receives too much UV light, the melanocytes may begin to grow abnormally and become cancerous.


A beacon of hope in the treatment of melanoma has been attack by the host’s immune system. This has resulted in the testing of a remarkably broad spectrum of immunotherapies, many of which failed to demonstrate clinical impact. One exception is, however, the use of adjuvant interferon (IFN) alpha.


There are multiple antitumor effects of IFN-{alpha}. These include a direct antiproliferative effect, increase of natural killer cell activity, and the upregulation of tumor antigens and/or HLA class I and class II antigens. Initial phase II clinical studies in metastatic melanoma showed response rates of 10%–20%.


Dolcera's research focuses on a prior art search on usage of interferon for the treatment of melanoma. The research consists of patents in US, EP, PCT, JP, Great Britain, and German patent records. Performed MPI-INPADOC search which cover bibliographic data for 71 countries and legal status for 42 countries
