Comparison of Telomere Length in Sun-Damaged SkinVersus Normal Skin
Investigator: Paul D. Langer, MD
Condition: Sun-Damaged Skin
This study is involved in comparing the length of DNA telomeres to see if they differ between sun-damaged versus normal skin.
Results of this study have implications in cancer research, as telomere lengths appear to be longer than normal in cancer cells.
