MELA Sciences, Inc. (MELA) Pioneering Earlier Detection of Melanoma Is Featured in Flaherty Financial News Newsletter #41

WEST HARRISON, NY--(Marketwired - Mar 11, 2014) - Fine tuning the crusade by MELA Sciences, Inc. (NASDAQ: MELA) to identify deadly melanoma earlier is featured in the March 10, 2014 issue of Flaherty Financial News Newsletter. It follows up two previous articles written four years ago. 

One American an hour is dying from melanoma for which in advanced cases there is no cure. Partly due to the widespread use of tanning beds, more young women are dying of melanoma than any other cancer. Modern imaging technology being pioneered by MELA to replace the less reliable naked eyeball skin lesion inspections performed today can make a difference. Many of the agonizing 8,760 yearly annual deaths from melanoma can be prevented by earlier detection.

New President and CEO Rose A. Crane covered the turnaround changes in MELA Sciences, Inc.'s business model to bring imaging technology to dermatologists, the last large healthcare holdout group. MELA imaging will be a revolution. As opposed to just looking with the naked eye, doctors will be able to understand more of what they are seeing.
