Summer, sun and skin cancer

Dear Sir or Madam,

Who does not like lying at the beach and bathing in the sun? Or being outside in the garden, enjoying the summer? Although most people are happy when the sun is shining, there is also a problem: The sun – and also some artificial sunlight sources – give off ultraviolet rays that damage the skin. And this can cause skin cancer. A new study shows now that new diagnoses for two types of skin cancer have increased in recent years, despite people being aware of the danger of the sun. Learn more about the study and what to do to reduce the risk of getting skin cancer in our News.

Have a sunny day, but don’t forget to put on some sunscreen!

Microscopic technique could help detect, diagnose metastatic melanomas

The fight against skin cancer just got a new weapon. For years, melanoma researchers have studied samples that were considered uniform in size and color, making them easier to examine by more conventional means. But melanomas do not always come in the same shape and hue; often, melanomas are irregular and dark, making them difficult to investigate.

A path toward ending AIDS in the US by 2025

A new study describes an ambitious but feasible path toward what may have seemed unachievable just a decade ago: an end to the AIDS epidemic in the U.S. Using prevention surveillance data to model rates of HIV incidence, prevalence and mortality, investigators set targets, specifically a decrease in new infections to 21,000 by 2020 and to 12,000 by 2025.
