  1. ncbi Superficial-spreading and nodular melanomas in Norway: a comparison by body site distribution and latitude gradients
    Emanuela Micu
    Department of Radiation Biology, The Norwegian Radium Hospital, University of Oslo, Oslo, Norway
    Melanoma Res 22:460-5. 2012
    ..Differences in sun exposure at northern latitudes have a major impact on different types of melanoma. It seems that NM is less sun-induced than SSM, for which other etiological and pathogenetic factors may play important roles...
  2. ncbi Comparison of the time and latitude trends of melanoma incidence in anorectal region and perianal skin with those of cutaneous malignant melanoma in Norway
    E Micu
    Department of Radiation Biology, The Norwegian Radium Hospital, Oslo University Hospital, Oslo, Norway
    J Eur Acad Dermatol Venereol 25:1444-9. 2011
    ..However, melanomas may arise also on non-sun-exposed areas (uveal and mucosal melanomas) and little is known about a possible relationship between sun exposure and melanoma on such locations...
  3. ncbi Latitude gradient for melanoma incidence by anatomic site and gender in Norway 1966-2007
    Emanuela Cicarma
    Department of Radiation Biology, The Norwegian Radium Hospital, Oslo University Hospital, Montebello, 0310 Oslo, Norway
    J Photochem Photobiol B 101:174-8. 2010
    ..The leveling off of melanoma trend is probably associated with melanoma prevention campaigns and with increasing awareness, although vitamin D could play a role...

    Emanuela Cicarma
    Department of Radiation Biology, The Norwegian Radium Hospital, Oslo University Hospital, Oslo, Norway
    Exp Dermatol 19:e67-72. 2010
    ..Such therapy leads to enhanced cutaneous vitamin D synthesis, which may be one of the mechanisms of action. Furthermore, another nutrient, folate, can probably also be influenced by UV radiation...

    Emanuela Cicarma
    Department of Radiation Biology, Rikshospitalet Radiumhospitalet HF, Oslo, Norway
    Anticancer Res 29:3495-500. 2009
    ..Populations living at high latitudes would probably benefit from moderately increasing their exposure to UVB to provide a good vitamin D status...
