Hunter among melanoma ‘hot spots’ and ‘hot spots of the future’

For the first time, scientists have mapped the skin of healthy people who were diagnosed with advanced me바카라사이트lanoma in 2012 and had a high prevalence of these cells.
Dr Ondo said this was the first time skin had ever been mapped for melanoma with “some kind of predictive capability” of how they were changing.
“We see these ‘hot spots’ of the future in the skin of people with advanced melanoma,” he said.
“These patches of skin are called hotspots, and if you look, there’s a pretty clear relationship between how rapidly these patches are being formed and what’s happening in the body.”
It is the first time scientists have mapped skin’s response to melanoma cells.

A total of 547 people had melanoma-related skin biopsies in Scotland in the period 2012-2014.바카라 In this work, Dr Ondo found that these skin patches and other areas of skin around them remained unchanged over time.
When the skin was analysed, they identified a ra카지노 사이트nge of melanoma hotspots of various ages, between three and 100 years.
Dr Ondo said this was “a wake-up call for scientists of all ages” to “consider the possible impacts that our skin will see on their work”.
“I think we’re not likely to lose any of them,” he said.
