Natural resistance of pigment cells to sunlight may make deadly skin cancer tough to treat
Scientists at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute have discovered that a gene that enables the skin's pigmented cells to survive harsh sunlight may have a darker side as well: making the deadly skin cancer, malignant melanoma, highly resistant to treatment. The findings are published in the June 14 Cell. (2002-06-13)

Researchers say trees could affect land use, reduce skin cancer

Researchers: Autumn color is nature's sunscreen
University of Wisconsin-Madison scientists have a new theory about why autumn leaves turn scarlet and why the hues are more vibrant some years than others. They say that the pigments -- called anthocyanins -- are meant to act like sunscreen. (2001-09-28)

Study shows antioxidants play vital role in protecting skin
Sun-worshippers beware: Most sunscreen products offer inadequate protection against the harmful effects of the sun's ultraviolet radiation. But there is hope, says a University of Illinois researcher. (2001-08-30)

Illinois researcher receives award for developing a better sunscreen
Craig A. Bonda of the C.P. Hall Company in Bedford Park, Ill., will be honored June 11 by the American Chemical Society for developing a better, longer-lasting sunscreen. He will receive one of four 2001 Industrial Innovation Awards at the Society's Central/Great Lakes joint regional meeting in Grand Rapids, Mich. (2001-06-07)

Reversing DNA damage caused by the sun before it becomes skin cancer may be possible
Scientists have synthesized an artificial enzyme they believe can repair sun-damaged DNA, the cause of many skin cancers. The scientists are hopeful the research may someday lead to a protective after-the-fact sunscreen or other product. The research was presented at the 221st national meeting of the American Chemical Society. (2001-04-05)

Stickers warn of UV radiation
Avoiding sunburn will be easier with the Sticker, a dime- sized patch worn on the skin or clothing, that changes color when the wearer has had too much sun. The Sticker measures the total dosage of UV rays absorbed, which is what causes burns and skin damage. Existing UV dosimeters measure the intensity of the UV, not the accumulated dose. (2000-05-23)

Melanoma Research Foundation sponsors nationwide events for melanoma awareness
The Melanoma Research Foundation (MRF), a non-profit organization dedicated to finding a cure, is sponsoring nationwide events in May, Melanoma Awareness Month. The foundation is a group of volunteers throughout the United States who are melanoma patients or family members of patients. In this first awareness campaign, the three-year- old organization does not have the resources for large events, but volunteers have come up with many creative ways to reach people. (2000-04-26)

Should sun protection factors on sunscreens be abandoned?
Numerical indicators of sun protection on sunscreen packaging can cause more confusion than clarity in users and this system should be abandoned in favour of other terms, suggests Professor Brian Diffey from Newcastle General Hospital in this week's BMJ. (2000-01-13)

Children Benefit Most From Sun Safety Interventions
Americans are slow to protect themselves against the most common form of cancer in the United States: skin cancer. Children have most to gain from sun safety behaviors, as an estimated 80 percent of total lifetime exposure occurs during childhood, according to scientists at the University of Hawaii and Harvard.
