Past and present research has focused primarily on the role of nutrition on the inhibition of melanoma growth and metastases. The application of nutritional manipulation in advanced human melanoma shows promise in the future clinical management of this disease. With the ability to culture melanocytes the influence of nutrition on the carcinogenesis of melanoma may be investigated. More detailed epidemiologic studies are required to define the role of nutrition in the development of human melanoma.
