IL-2 "SELECT" for Advanced Melanoma
The High-Dose Aldesleukin (IL-2) "SELECT" Trial: A Prospective Tissue Collection Protocol to Investigate Predictive Models of Response to High-Dose IL-2 Treatments in Patients With Advance Melanoma
Status Conditions Phase Study ID
Recruiting Malignant Melanoma N/A NCT01288963
