Hydrochlorothiazide use and risk of skin cancers: A systematic review.

[Hydrochlorothiazide use and risk of skin cancers: A systematic review]. Rev Med Interne. 2019 May 14;: Authors: Becquart O, Guillot B, Bourrain JL, Duflos C, Du-Thanh A Abstract The risk of skin cancer induced by photosensiting drugs is well known. An association between hydrochlorothiazide use and skin cancer has been recently published in some epidemiological studies. A systematic review of case-control or prospectives cohorts showed an increased risk of cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma even if some confusing factors such as tobacco smoking was not analysed. Results are more conflicting for basal cell carcinoma or melanoma. These results do not modify the benefit/risk ratio but should lead to propose preventive mesures: identification of high risk population, avoidance of this drug if possible in immunocompromised patients or with previous skin cancer, regular skin examination in case of long term use of hydrochlorothiazide.

Abstract We conducted a meta-analysis to evaluate the association between fat intake and the risk of three major types of skin cancer including basal cell carcinoma (BCC), squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) and cutaneous malignant melanoma (CMM). A comprehensive search of PubMed and EMBASE was performed to identify all relevant observational studies published up to December 1, 2018. Specific odds ratio (OR) or relative risk (RR) estimates for the highest versus the lowest intake of dietary fat and 95% confidence intervals (CI) from the included studies were pooled using random effect model. Three prospective cohort stu...

This study was conducted using data from 30,702 unrelated, genotyped patients of recent European descent from the Michigan Genomics Initiative (MGI), a longitudinal biorepository effort within Michigan Medicine. We examine the three most common skin cancer subtypes in the USA: basal cell carcinoma, cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma. Using these PRS for various skin cancer subtypes, we conduct a phenome-wide association study (PheWAS) within the MGI data to evaluate PRS associations with secondary traits. PheWAS results are then replicated using population-based UK Biobank data and compared across various PRS ...

Papillon –Lefèvre syndrome (PLS) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder characterized by palmoplantar keratoderma and early-onset periodontitis. It was first described by Papillon and Lefèvre in 1924. PLS is caused by mutations in the cathepsin-C(CTSC) gene. The development of malignant skin neoplasms in PLS patients is extremely rare. To date, there have been two cases of malignant melanoma (MM) in PLS patients reported in international journals. Further, only one case of squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) has been reported in PLS patients. To the best of our knowledge, no cases with basal cell carcinoma in...

CONCLUSIONS: Our large study suggests that prevention of melanoma in NMSC patients is mandatory, especially for patients which develop a NMSC under 40 years of age. PMID: 31042854 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusions: Our results underestimate the direct costs of nmsc because inpatient services and non-physician costs were not included in the calculations. The present research represents a first step in understanding the cost burden of nmsc in Saskatchewan. PMID: 31043813 [PubMed - in process]

Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. Research estimates that nonmelanoma skin cancer, including basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma, affects more than 3 million Americans a year. The incidence of both non-melanoma and melanoma skin cancers has been increasing over the past decades. Fortunately, most NMSC lesions are detected at an early stage that is amenable to very effective local therapy and thus are highly curable. Various therapeutic modalities are currently being used to treat these tumors, including surgery, topical treatments and radiotherapy.

AbstractSkin cancer can be classified as cutaneous malignant melanoma, basal cell carcinoma, and squamous cell carcinoma. Due to the high level of morbidity and mortality, skin cancer has become a global public health issue worldwide while the pathogenesis of skin cancer is still unclear. It is necessary to further identify the pathogenesis of skin cancer and find candidate targets to diagnose and treat skin cancer. A variety of factors are known to be associated with skin cancer including N-glycosylation, which partly explained the malignant behaviors of skin cancer. In this review, we retrieved databases such as PubMed a...
