The combination of two agents (an anti-inflammatory agent and a toxin) loaded into nanoparticles in specific proportions, has been found to be effective in both in vitro models and in vivo (mouse) models of human melanoma. Other tests will be carried out before knowing if this innovative treatment can be tested in patients. Its name: CelePlum-777
