The Australian Melanoma Research Foundation is a not-for-profit charity organisation, established by a group of dedicated volunteers to provide funding for research into novel immune based treatments for melanoma. We also have a strong commitment to melanoma awareness and education within the community, as well as providing a support service to anybody affected by melanoma or seeking information regarding melanoma treatment.
Melanoma Vaccine Trial
Enhancing melanoma outcomes using a timed immunotherapy vaccine
The AMRF is a major sponsor of the EMOTIV trial for patients with advanced melanoma, which is continuing at the Royal Adelaide Hospital.
Eligibility: The study is for South Australian patients with advanced (Stage IV or III) melanoma, which cannot be removed by surgery.
Aims: To test a new approach to administering a melanoma vaccine, which had excellent results in a previous study, when it was given at regular intervals (18% complete response rate and 13% 5-year survival times). The vaccine doses will be either 'timed' or not-timed' with the patients own immune system fluctuations. The potential is to improve the effectiveness of the vaccine. The vaccine has virtually no side effects and early results of this study are remarkable.

Melanoma March 2017
Melanoma March events will be taking place in 17 locations across Australia in 2017. Melanoma March is a fun community event where participants unite together and walk or march along a short course to raise awareness and funds for life-saving research.
By participating and raising funds, you will help us move closer to a cure for melanoma.
Get a team together, create your own online fundraising page and encourage your family and friends to donate. All funds raised go towards vital research to help thousands of Australians diagnosed with melanoma each year.
In recent years, funds raised through Melanoma March have gone towards research projects making ground-breaking discoveries that have tripled the life expectancy for advanced melanoma patients.
We’re making progress, but we need your help to end melanoma, once and for all.
