- A multicentre epidemiological study on sunbed use and cutaneous melanoma in EuropeVeronique Bataille
Cancer Research UK Centre for Epidemiology, Mathematics and Statistics, Wolfson Institute of Preventive Medicine, Queen Mary, London, UK
Eur J Cancer 41:2141-9. 2005..Sunbed exposure has become increasingly prevalent over the last 20 years, especially in Northern Europe but the full impact of this exposure on skin cancers may not become apparent for many years...

Genetic Epidemiology and Twin Research Unit, St Thomas Hospital, Lambeth Palace Road, London SE1 7EH, UK
Eur J Cancer 40:429-35. 2004..However, it is possible that the mean lag time of 7 years between exposure to sunbed and melanoma in this study may have led to an under-estimation of the long-term melanoma risk...
- Solar keratoses: a risk factor for melanoma but negative association with melanocytic naeviV Bataille
Dermatology Department, Royal London Hospital, UK
Int J Cancer 78:8-12. 1998..The fact that these 2 phenotypes were found to be negatively associated suggests that susceptibility to melanoma may be expressed via 2 distinct cutaneous phenotypes which may be genetically determined...
