Genes and Melanoma
Major advances have been made in the understanding of melanoma in the past decade. The pathophysiology of genetic aberrations in melanoma oncogenesis as well as the evidence of family risk associated, have relevant implications in the
treatment and prognosis of patients, namely in patients with advanced disease.
In this paper the authors describe, in a schematic and precise way, the different molecular pathways implicated in oncogenetic events in melanoma, which are the molecular targets of new on-going and newly developed targeted therapies.
