Description: A wave in research of metastatic melanoma has raised the question: Can drugs for some cancers be used to understand responses in other cancers? The answer is yes, but research is ongoing. Dr. Brian Koffman, a doctor turned patient, and Dr. Jeffrey Sosman, from Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center, discuss excitement around these new developments and what they are learning. Dr. Sosman talks about how many of the same molecular changes seen in melanoma have also been seen in BRAF mutant lung cancer, kidney cancer, gastric cancer and how this knowledge may allow doctors to treat patients based on the target rather than what's seen on the surface.
