Cutaneous melanoma patients have normal repair kinetics of ultraviolet-induced DNA repair in skin in situ.

Abstract

The DNA lesions induced by ultraviolet radiation include cyclobutane pyrimidine dimers and 6-4 photoproducts. We investigated whether cutaneous melanoma patients have an impaired ability to repair their ultraviolet-induced photolesions. Seventeen patients with melanoma and 13 healthy controls took part in this study. Both groups received a dose of 40 mJ per… (More)
