Thirty-five patients with 67 measureable cutaneous or lymph node metastases from malignant melanoma were treated with radiation therapy in a variety of total doses and dose fractions. There was no correlation between total dose and response rate. However, there was a strong correlation between fraction size and response rate. There were four (9%) complete responses in 43 lesions treated with fractions less than or equal to 500 rad (5 Gy) compared with 12 (50%) complete responses in 24 lesions… CONTINUE READING
