One class of xeroderma pigmentosum (XP) patients, known as XP variants, inherit the characteristic predisposition to sunlight-induced skin cancer, but unlike the majority of XP patients, their cells do not exhibit a deficiency in rate of excision repair of ultraviolet (UV) radiation-induced DNA damage. XP variant cells are only slightly more sensitive than(More)
Retinoblastoma (RB), cancer of the retina, occurs in an inherited form which not only predisposes the patient to bilateral RB, but also to the risk of developing secondary tumors of mesenchymal origin (osteosarcomas and fibrosarcomas). These tumors often arise in areas that were exposed to ionizing radiation during therapy and fibroblasts derived from(More)
