Risk factors of the cutaneous melanoma phenotype






Archives of Dermatological Research 270(1): 33-36

Risk factors of the cutaneous melanoma phenotype

Of 20 melanoma patients 85% show a prolonged erythema persistence after a marked test erythema of 8 MED [minimal erythematic dose] with 300 nm .+-. 10 nm (control group only 34%). This phenomenon does not correlate with the skin type and is useful in identifying high-risk patients prone to melanoma and light-induced skin cancer (92%). The spontaneous and the UV-C-induced number of sister chromatid exchanges (SCE) per metaphase was significantly higher in peripheral leukocytes of melanoma patients than in normal controls. The attempt was made to establish a risk-spectrum of cutaneous melanoma phenotype.

BACKGROUND: The results of several studies have provided evidence that patients diagnosed with cutaneous melanoma (CM) are at a higher risk of developing a second primary CM than the general population. In this study, the authors examined how the...

Between 1 April 1979 and 31 March 1981, 904 residents of the four western provinces of Canada (population 6.5 million), were diagnosed as suffering from primary cutaneous malignant melanoma. Of 801 patients aged 20-79 years, 665 (83%) were intervi...
