The Western Australian Melanoma Advisory Service (WAMAS) was established in 2000 as a joint initiative between the Department of Health (WA) and St John of God Health Care.
The primary aim of this service is to provide comprehensive advice on all problems associated with the diagnosis and treatment of melanoma.
The current booklet from WAMAS discusses the latest information for medical professionals. This includes such therapies as vaccine therapy for melanoma patients, interferon adjuvant therapy in stage II and stage III melanoma patients, and the use of sentinel lymph node biopsies.
The latest statistics of melanoma incidence and mortality in Western Australia is discussed as is cutaneous melanoma, the latest clinical trials (which can be seen in the Research Department of this site) and a summary of WAMAS activities from June 2000 to August 2002.
