Phase II trial of neoadjuvant temozolomide in resectable melanoma patients
The response proportion to TMZ in the neoadjuvant setting was 16%, not different than in the metastatic setting. Responses were seen even in tumors with a methylated MGMT promoter. Pretreatment cryopreserved tumor adequate for microarray analysis could be obtained in most, but not all, patients. Post-treatment tumor was unavailable in complete responders.
