Disease Management and Resource Use for the Management of Melanoma stage IIIc or IV Positive for BRAF V600 Mutations in Greece
Objective: Melanoma is one of the most aggressive cancers and is responsible for the majority of skin cancer deaths, with the
presence of metastases prognostic for poor survival. At a time when most cancer incidences are falling, the annual incidence
of melanoma has risen as rapidly as 4-6% in many European countries, with a substantial economic burden in advanced
stages. The objective of this study is the investigation of treatment pathways and healthcare resource use related to advanced
BRAF-mutated melanoma in Greece.
