This paper theoretically evaluates lock-in thermal imaging for the early-stage detection of cutaneous melanoma. Lock-in thermal imaging is based on the periodic thermal excitation of the specimen under test. Resulting surface temperature oscillations are recorded with an infrared camera and allow the detection of variations of the sample's thermophysical(More)
In a previous study on a xenograft model of melanoma, we showed that the beta-adrenergic receptor antagonist propranolol inhibits melanoma development by modulating angiogenesis, proliferation and cell survival. Stress hormones can influence tumor development in different ways and norepinephrine was shown to downregulate antitumor immune responses by(More)
Tumor antigen-reactive T cells can be detected in a large proportion of melanoma patients, but their efficacy on tumor control in vivo remains unclear. On the other hand, vitiligo, a skin disorder characterized by patchy depigmented macules, may occur spontaneously or after antitumor therapies. Moreover, vitiligo is significantly associated with positive(More)
