Dr. Donald Morton, has developed a vaccine, Canvixin, that may cure one
third more people with melanoma skin cancer that has spread, or
metasstasized, to other organs of the body than existing
He began developing his vaccine, in the early 60's, after seeing a patient
whose melanoma cancer had "just gone away" even though it had spread to
her liver and lungs. Such remissions which tend to occur after a patient
develops a bacterial infection, happen in 1 of 2,000 to 5,000 patient with
melanoma that has spread.
"We think the reason this has happened is that the immune system has
been activated" by something like an unrelated infection, he said.
"I said if it happens spontaneously, maybe we can make it happen at will."

Facts about melanoma
Melanoma is the most deadly form of skin cancer. Read on to learn more
about the disease. How many people are affected?What are the warning signs?
Where do melanomas appear?How can melanoma be prevented?How treatable is
Melanoma is expected to strike 51,400 Americans this year and kill 7,800.
While melanoma accounts for only about 4 percent of all skin cancer cases,
it causes almost 80 percent of skin cancer deaths.
Moles or other spots on the skin that are changing in size, shape, or
color should be evaluated promptly. The warning signs of melanoma are
often called the ABCD’s:
A - asymmetry. One half of a mole or pigmented spot doesn’t match the
B - border irregularity. The edges are notched, ragged or blurred.
C - color. It varies from one part of the mole or spot to another. There
may be shades of tan, brown, black and sometimes white, red or blue.
D - diameter greater than that of a pencil eraser.
Melanomas can develop from or near an existing mole, or away from such
blemishes. They appear most often on the upper backs of men or women or
the legs of women, but they can occur anywhere on the body.
The main preventable cause of melanoma is excessive sun exposure. So
doctors advise avoiding or limiting sun exposure from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.,
and using protective clothing and sunscreen with an SPF rating of at least
15. Severe sunburns in childhood may particularly increase the risk of
melanoma in later life, so children in particular should be protected,
When melanoma is caught in its earliest stages and removed, it is highly
curable. Untreated, melanoma can spread quickly into the body from the

a melanoma that doesn't look like a melanoma" See your Doctor

the rest of the skin
