Melanoma is a malignant neoplasm commonly arising from the pigmented cells of the skin. Although it is curable if caught early, effective therapies for more advanced and often metastatic melanomas are lacking. In addition, the frequency of melanoma is increasing worldwide, possibly associated with increased exposure to ultraviolet light.
