Researchers develop new drug that skin cancer should avoid

Scientists have developed that sunlight mimics the skin of a tan without harmful UV radiation. In the future it may be possible to help prevent skin cancer.

That, say researchers, following a study that has been published in Cell Reports.

The means to keep the skin, as it were, for the fool, by which melanin is created. It would also work for redheads, which normally burn easily in the sun. Melanin is the pigment that gives the skin, hair and eyes color. It is a natural protection against the sun of the body.

The research team from Massachusetts General Hospital, hopes that the discovery of skin cancer in the future.

UV light makes the skin darker and caused it damage. This is done by a number of chemical reactions, which eventually lead to the production of dark melanin.

The new tool differs clearly from self-tanning products, skin darkening without the protection of melanin, or the solarium, where the skin is exposed to UV light.

“Our real goal is to develop a new strategy for protection of the skin against UV radiation and cancer”, says researcher David Fisher at BBC.

“Dark pigment is associated with a lower risk of all forms of skin cancer, so that would be a huge development.”

Ultimately want to the scientists is their means to combine with sunscreen for maximum protection against solar radiation.
