Hunter among melanoma ‘hot spots’ for 20 years
Scientists have identified 10 rare, incurable forms of melanoma.
In 2010, melanoma was listed as a ‘hot spot’ for 20 years in Germany. Now, the discovery has gone online and appears to be among the largest ever uncovered for the disease.
The results were published in the journal PLOS Pathogens on May 14.
A number of melanoma models have already been used to predict the risk of developing the disease, but the results of these have only been shown in three separate sets of data, said Dr. Christian Neufeld, chief medical officer for Germany’s German cancer agency.
The results also show that the melanoma risk in this particular population may be underestimated, as more than a third of melanoma patients were not diagnosed before age 40, he added.
„Some people who have undergone the recommended screening tests appear to have a slight increased risk of developing some malignant forms of the disease. That is of course why the increased risk of cancer is so worrying,“ Neufeld said.
Some of the rare variants shown to increase the risk of melanoma are very rare – they are estimated to be about 1 in 4,000 in the world.
About three quarters of patients in Germany who had skin cancer were born before 1950 and are at a lower risk of developing the disease, while the risk in Europe has remained constant since the 1970s.
While the disease is spread between the arms of the skin, the patient typically does not develop the disease between the legs. The s카지노 슬롯 머신kin starts to turn black, and the black patches grow until they have penetrated the liver.
The skin does not break, and the skin becomes increasingly hardened o신화 카지노ver several years. It is not considered cancerous until the black patches spread beyond the liver.
Researchers studied samples from over 5,000 of the nearly 1.1 million people who underwent sc밀리언 카지노reening in Germany between 1995 and 2012 and identified 10 melanoma variants, which have only been found in one other set of German studies: the first and second series of a German screening tool called Screening Plus 1-B.
The data showed that the variant in this new study, known as a ‘R1′, also showed up in two other studies carried out by German researchers, and was one of the rare genetic variants shown to raise the risk of the disease.
Neufeld said the new findings are important not only because they indicate that people in Germany have a different ris
