Stage 0 Melanoma

Current Clinical Trials



Stage 0 melanoma is defined by the American Joint Committee on Cancer's TNM classification system:[1]

  • Tis, N0, M0

Patients with stage 0 disease may be treated by excision with minimal, but microscopically free, margins.

Current Clinical Trials

Check for U.S. clinical trials from NCI's list of cancer clinical trials that are now accepting patients with stage 0 melanoma. The list of clinical trials can be further narrowed by location, drug, intervention, and other criteria.

General information about clinical trials is also available from the NCI Web site.
