"The Food and Drug Administration yesterday announced the approval of a new drug to treat advanced melanoma, a deadly form of cancer. The drug, Zelboraf, was approved for patients with metastatic melanoma, the most life-threatening form of skin cancer and one that cannot be removed with surgery. The drug is the latest in a new generation of 'personalized' cancer-fighting drugs tailored to attack genetic vulnerabilities of malignancies." (08/18/11)
