Researcher Instigates Cancer Cell Suicide

A Wayne State University School of Medicine physician-researcher has developed a personalized therapy to treat a wide range of cancers. The treatment is based on a naturally occurring human enzyme that has been genetically modified to fool cancer cells into killing themselves. The unique concept, patented by Wayne State University, was successfully demonstrated on melanoma

Higher Duration Of Working Rotating Nightshifts Associated With A Significantly Lower Risk Of Skin Cancer In Nurses

Melatonin is known to have cancer-protective properties, and shift work can induce desynchrony of the circadian system, reducing melatonin production. Shift work has been thought to have important health impacts, with evidence linking shift work to an increased risk of several cancers including breast, endometrial, prostate, and colorectal, and non-Hodgkin lymphoma. In a recent study,

Una maggiore durata dei turni di lavoro notturni è associata ad una significativa riduzione di melanoma nelle infermiere

La melatonina è nota per avere proprietà protettive contro il melanoma; il lavoro a turni può indurre desincronizzazione del sistema circadiano, riducendo la produzione di melatonina. E’ stato studiato che il lavoro a turni può avere un impatto importante sulla salute, e ci sono stati studi che collegano il lavoro a turni con un aumentato
