INVESTIGATIVE REPORT
CDKN2A/CDK4 Status in Greek Patients with Familial Melanoma and Association with Clinico-epidemiological Parameters
Fani Karagianni, Ching-Ni Njauw, Katerina P. Kypreou, Aravela Stergiopoulou, Michaela Plaka, Dorothea Polydorou, Vasiliki Chasapi, Leontios Pappas, Ioannis A. Stratigos, Gregory Champsas, Peter Panagiotou, Helen Gogas, Evangelos Evangelou, Hensin Tsao, Alexander J. Stratigos, Irene Stefanaki
Our study presents a series of Greek familial melanoma patients and evaluates CDKN2A and CDK4 variants in these patients in association with clinico-epidemiological characteristics and family prevalence of other neoplasias. The high percentage (46.2%) of CDKN2A variants among Greek melanoma-prone families highlights the value of genetic counseling and testing, while medical advice on healthy lifestyle and prompt screening for other cancers is essential. The age of at melanoma diagnosis was shifted a decade earlier in carriers of CDKN2A variants compared with CDKN2A wild­type patients, underscoring the need for intense vigilance in these individuals from a young age.

INVESTIGATIVE REPORT
Sub-optimal Application of a High SPF Sunscreen Prevents Epidermal DNA Damage in Vivo
Antony R. Young, Jessica Greenaway, Graham I. Harrison, Karl P. Lawrence, Robert Sarkany, Thierry Douki, France Boyer, Gwendal Josse, Emmanuel Questel, Camille Monteil, Ana B. Rossi
A sunscreen’s labelled SPF is determined at 2mg/cm2 skin but actual SPF depends on application thickness (see figure). This was also the case for protection against epidermal DNA photodamage with acute and repeated daily exposures of high dose solar simulated radiation (SSR). However, even at an application thickness of 0.75mg/cm2, that represents “typical” sunscreen use, there was significant protection against DNA lesions (assessed by HPLC-MS-MS) from 5 consecutive days of SSR exposure. The study supports the use of a very high SPF sunscreen in the prevention of skin cancer.
