In 1989, the Scottish melanoma group initiated a randomized trial, comparing observation alone with 6 months' therapy with low dose interferon (given subcutaneously 3 MU day-1, twice weekly), for patients with primary melanomas of at least 3 mm Breslow thickness, or with evidence of regional node involvement. The trial was closed in 1993 with only 95(More)
It is well established that renal allograft recipients (RARs) have an increased incidence of viral warts and premalignant and malignant cutaneous lesions, and the risk of their development increases in proportion to duration of graft survival. It has been postulated that, in addition to the effects of prolonged immunosuppression and previous sun exposure,(More)
Renal allograft recipients (RARs) have a well-documented increased incidence of viral warts and cutaneous neoplasia, particularly those with long graft life and high sun exposure. A clinicopathological survey of 69 RARs in south-east Scotland, with follow-up periods of up to 28 years after transplantation, revealed marked variation in patient susceptibility(More)
Renal allograft recipients suffer from a markedly increased susceptibility to premalignant and malignant cutaneous lesions. Although various aetiological factors have been implicated, little is known of the associated genetic events. In this study we initially employed immunocytochemical techniques to investigate the prevalence and localisation of(More)
Between 1987 and 1989 the Cancer Research Campaign funded a health education programme for the early detection of cutaneous malignant melanoma in the general population in 6 health districts of England and 1 health board in Scotland (population of 3 million). The intervention was evaluated by studying its effects on annual and cumulative mortality rates for(More)
