    Melanomas are highly clonogenic. Genetic variability and polymorphism of tumour cell populations have been reported. However, no direct evidence of imitator activity as a source of genetic polymorphism for melanoma cells has been described. Some intermediates of melanin synthesis are cytotoxic...

    Malignant melanomas were supposed to harbour the human herpesvirus-type 8 (HHV-8) genome, as melanoma cells were reported to express interleukin-6 and a homologue of interleukin-6 was found in the HHV-8 genome. We therefore investigated 33 primary malignant melanomas by polymerase chain...

    Incidence rate of skin tumours, both, non-melanoma and melanoma, is increasing nowadays. Various etiological factors are of relevance for the occurrence of the diseases. The solar radiation, as well, long term exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation, have the greatest impact on development of...
