P53 is a key regulatory molecule in the cellular response to ultraviolet radiation, and TP53 mutation is the most common alteration in non-melanoma skin cancer. The MDM2 oncogene negatively regulates p53 protein levels, and both genes have functional polymorphisms that may modify skin cancer risk. Furthermore, prior research suggests that TP53 mutations(More)
Malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) remains a cancer of poor prognosis. It is hoped that implementation of effective screening biomarkers will lead to earlier diagnoses and improved outcomes. Serum-measured soluble mesothelin-related peptide (SMRP) has been demonstrated to have excellent specificity for MPM, but poor sensitivity precludes its use as a(More)
