|aOne of a series of three programs on the efforts of the National Cancer Institute at the National Institutes of Health to prevent and treat melanoma, a lethal form of skin cancer. This segment describes how a group of people suffering from advanced stages of melanoma are treated with a vaccine made of the GP100 gene inserted into an adenovirus, delivered in combination with the immune-boosting hormone Interleukin-2. Research team leader Dr. Steven Rosenberg discusses the triumphs and frustrations of the first six months of the FDA-approved clinical trials while striving to save his patients from the cancer that is ravaging their bodies.
