Open Public Meeting Presentation: Rigel (PPT - 474KB)

  1. 1. Indoor Tanning and Melanoma: A Direct Link Darrell S. Rigel, MD Clinical Professor, New York University Medical School Past President – American Society for Dermatologic Surgery
  2. 2. American Society for Dermatologic Surgery • 5200 members who diagnose and treat skin cancers •Members performed over 3.1 million skin cancers procedures last year, a 55% increase over 2005 * •Regularly see people who have been exposed to tanning beds develop skin cancer *ASDS Survey – Perceptions Solutions 2009
  3. 3. UV is a carcinogen • UVB – “complete” carcinogen – Energy is directly absorbed by DNA – Pyrimidine dimer formation • UVA – “indirect” carcinogen – Excites chromophores and generates free radicals  DNA strand breaks • UV listed as known carcinogen by FDA • WHO classified UV tanning beds as “carcinogenic to humans” Matsumura et al, Toxicol Applied Pharmcol, 2004 http://ntp.niehs.nih.gov/ntp/roc/eleventh/profiles/s183uvrr.pdf, 2005 Lancet Oncology, Aug 2009.
  4. 4. Is increased melanoma risk associated with tanning bed usage?
  5. 5. Sunburns, Tanning Bed Usage and MM • 413 MM patients vs. 416 controls • Risk factors for the development of MM were 10 or more sunburns and tanning bed use in fair skinned young subjects • Conclusion: – Melanoma risk increased in tanning bed users – Risk may be underestimated due to only mean lag time in study of 7 years from tanning bed exposure to MM Bataille et al, Eur J Cancer, 2004
  6. 6. Risk Factors for MM in Women Tanning Beds, Sun Exposure, Pigmentation • 106,379 Scandinavian women with 8 years of FU • 187 MM diagnosed during study interval • Factors that significantly influenced MM risk: – larger body surface area – number of nevi on legs – red hair – sunburns per year – use of tanning beds >= once a month • Conclusion: – Tanning bed use influences Melanoma risk – Full effects of exposure may not yet be seen Veierod et al, JNCI, 2003
  7. 7. Tanning and Melanoma Risk • Significantly increased risk of developing MM (OR=1.8) for persons exposed to UV tanning beds even after accounting for other risk factors by multivariate analysis • Conclusion: – Significant association with tanning and the later development of Melanoma Westerdahl et al, Br J Cancer, 2000
  8. 8. Tanning Salons and MM Risk • 200 MM pts with 804 controls from the Nurse Health Study • RR = 2.1 for ever vs. never tanning salon usage • Conclusion: – Tanning bed use associated with Melanoma Han et al, Int J Epidemiol, 2006
  9. 9. Tanning beds and Melanoma Risk • 10 studies comparing “ever” vs. “never” exposed to UV tanning beds • MM risk OR=1.25 ever using a tanning bed • Conclusion: – Significant association with “ever” tanning in UV tanning beds and the later development of Melanoma Gallagher et al, Cancer Epidemiol Biomarkers Prev, 2005
  10. 10. Tanning and Melanoma Risk • 1518 dermatology pts surveyed for skin cancer history and tanning bed usage • MM risk OR 1.64 ever using a tanning bed • OR=3.2 for women <45 (OR=4.2 if tanning sessions >20 mins) • Conclusion: – Significant association with tanning and the later development of Melanoma (especially in younger women) Ting et al, Int J Dermatol, 2007
  11. 11. Tanning and Melanoma Risk • 423 cases of MM vs. 678 controls for tanning and sunlamp usage • MM risk OR 1.39 ever using a sunlamp and 1.14 ever using a tanning bed • Latency may not yet be long enough to see full effect of risk for developing MM • Conclusion: – Significant association with tanning and the later development of Melanoma Clough-Corr et al, Cancer Causes Control, 2008
  12. 12. Tanning Bed use and MM risk • Meta-analysis of 19 studies • RR 1.15 for MM with tanning bed use • RR 1.75 if tanning began prior to age 35 • Evidence does not support a protective effect of the use of tanning beds against damage to the skin from subsequent sun exposure • Conclusion: – Young adults should be discouraged from using indoor tanning equipment and restricted access to tanning beds by minors should be strongly considered Green et al, Int J Cancer, 2007
  13. 13. Tanning Beds and MM Risk Risk of Multiple vs. Single Primary MM • 531 MM patients (125 Multiple/406 single) • 152 reported prior tanning bed usage • Results – Adjusted for natural UV (sun) exposure history – OR = 1.68 for Tanning Bed usage – First exposure before age 20 (OR = 2.6) • Conclusion: – Significant association of Melanoma risk and UV- emitting tanning beds Chiu et al, World Congress on Melanoma, 2005
  14. 14. Dermatologists are seeing: More melanomas in young women… in anatomic sites where the “sun doesn’t shine” Something that was very rarely seen a decade ago Virtually every one of these young women with melanoma that I see have a significant indoor tanning history!

  19. 19. • Ban the use and sale of tanning devices in the US If this cannot be done: • Reclassify tanning devices to the strongest possible category • Restrict access to tanning beds by minors • Require posted warning statements • Require informed consent for all consumers • Implement and enforce labeling recommendations from the TAN Act • Enforce additional state regulations The ASDS Requests the FDA to:
