Do You Have Actinic Keratoses?

University of Arizona Cancer Center
April 19, 2013

The Skin Cancer Institute and Skin Cancer Prevention Program at the University of Arizona Cancer Center are creating a sample repository or “bank” to be used for future research to better understand the biology and treatment of skin cancer.  This research will be based on the personal health information of the study participants, their medical and treatment history for skin cancer or pre-cancerous skin lesions, and the collection of their tissue and blood samples, which will be stored and then used for laboratory tests.

We are seeking study participants, ages 18-80, who have a history of actinic keratoses or “pre-cancers.” They are asked to answer questions about their personal characteristics, past medical history, and risk factors. Small amounts of blood and small skin samples are collected from actinic keratoses, as well as from areas of sun damaged skin and sun protected skin. 

Compensation for time and travel will be provided to qualified study participants.

For more information please call the Study Coordinator at 520-321-7747.
