    • Association of Common Genetic Polymorphisms with Melanoma Patient IL-12p40 Blood Levels, Risk, and Outcomes. 

      Fang, Shenying; Wang, Yuling; Chun, Yun S; Liu, Huey; Ross, Merrick I; Gershenwald, Jeffrey E; Cormier, Janice N; ... (18 authors) (J Invest Dermatol, 2015-09)
      Recent investigation has identified association of IL-12p40 blood levels with melanoma recurrence and patient survival. No studies have investigated associations of single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) with melanoma patient ...
    • Polymorphisms of nucleotide excision repair genes predict melanoma survival. 

      Li, Chunying; Yin, Ming; Wang, Li-E; Amos, Christopher I; Zhu, Dakai; Lee, Jeffrey E; Gershenwald, Jeffrey E; ... (9 authors) (The Journal of investigative dermatology, 2013-07)
      Melanoma is the most highly malignant skin cancer, and nucleotide excision repair (NER) is involved in melanoma susceptibility. In this analysis of 1,042 melanoma patients, we evaluated whether genetic variants of NER genes ...
    • The relationship between blood IL-12p40 level and melanoma progression. 

      Fang, Shenying; Wang, Yuling; Chun, Yun Shin; Liu, Huey; Ross, Merrick I; Gershenwald, Jeffrey E; Cormier, Janice N; ... (17 authors) (Int J Cancer, 2015-04-15)
      Cytokines such as Interleukin (IL)-12p70 ("IL-12") and IL-23 can influence tumor progression. We tested the hypothesis that blood levels of IL-12p40, the common subunit of both cytokines, are associated with melanoma progression. ...
