ATLANTA - Former US president Jimmy Carter is responding well to cancer treatment and there is no evidence of new malignancy, the Carter Center said on Tuesday.
Carter, 91, started treatment in August for melanoma that had spread from his liver to his brain.
After recent tests, doctors at Emory University's Winship Cancer Institute gave Carter "good news," the Carter Center said.
"They tell him that recent tests have shown there is no evidence of new malignancy, and his original problem is responding well to treatment," it said. "Further tests will continue."
