      We report a genome-wide association study for melanoma that was conducted by the GenoMEL Consortium. Our discovery phase included 2,981 individuals with melanoma and 1,982 study-specific control individuals of European ancestry, ...
    • On the interplay of telomeres, nevi and the risk of melanoma. 

      Bodelon, Clara; Pfeiffer, Ruth M; Bollati, Valentina; Debbache, Julien; Calista, Donato; Ghiorzo, Paola; Fargnoli, Maria Concetta; ... (22 authors) (PloS one, 2012-01)
      The relationship between telomeres, nevi and melanoma is complex. Shorter telomeres have been found to be associated with many cancers and with number of nevi, a known risk factor for melanoma. However, shorter telomeres ...
