Regression predicts Sentinel Lymph Node (SLN) status

The prognostic significance of regression has long been a matter of debate. Our guest, Professor Richard Scolyer, co-director of the Melanoma Institute Australia discussed his team’s recent findings on the prognostic value of regression, and the presence of regression and/or tumor infiltrating lymphocytes (TIL) in primary cutaneous melanomas predicted sentinel lymph node (SLN) status and survival outcomes.
