Editor's note: This is a press release from a company that manufactures an immunotherapy treatment for melanoma. The treatment, called Melapuldencel-T, is meant to boost a patient's own immune system to fight cancer. A recent study testing Melapuldencel-T in patients found promising results for the treatment.
