Merrick Ross, chief of the melanoma section in the Department of Surgical Oncology at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, says a phase 2 trial of Rose Bengal 10% as a chemical ablative agent injected directly into melanoma tumors yielded “very impressive data.” Even “bystander” lesions that were not injected showed good partial and complete responses, confirming the agent’s systemic value. Because of low toxicity, the treatment could be useful not only in combination with other therapies but as monotherapy for patients who aren’t good candidates for more toxic systemic treatments.
