Randomized phase II study of weekly paclitaxel versus paclitaxel and carboplatin as second-line therapy in disseminated melanoma: a multicentre trial of the Dermatologic Co-operative Oncology Group (DeCOG)



Randomized phase II study of weekly paclitaxel versus paclitaxel and carboplatin as second-line therapy in disseminated melanoma: a multicentre trial of the Dermatologic Co-operative Oncology Group (DeCOG)



Melanoma Research 13(5): 531-536



Stage melanoma IV has a poor prognosis, with a median survival time between 3 and 11 months from the diagnosis of distant metastases. Response rates in first-line regimens are around 20%. To date, no second-line treatment has been established. We performed a randomized, multicentre, second-line clinical phase II study of paclitaxel either as monotherapy or combined with carboplatin given on an outpatient basis.
