Unilateral nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome an individually controlled study of fibroblast sensitivity to radiation


, : Unilateral nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome an individually controlled study of fibroblast sensitivity to radiation. Clinical & Experimental Dermatology 15(5): 352-355

A patient with unilateral nevoid basal-cell-carcinoma syndrome (NBCCS, Gorlin's syndrome) provided a unique opportunity to compare the radiation sensitivity of fibroblasts from the affected and unaffected sides of the same individual. Although the growth rate of the fibroblast strain established from the affeted side was faster than that from the unaffected side there was no difference in X-ray, UV-B or UV-C radiation sensitivity between fibtoblasts from the two sides. These results are discussed in the context of previous studies of radiation sensitivity in NBCCS.
