TOPICAL pTpT MAY PROVIDE PROTECTIVE TAN WITHOUT UV EXPOSURE

This article was originally published in The Rose Sheet

Executive Summary

TOPICAL pTpT MAY PROVIDE PROTECTIVE TAN WITHOUT UV EXPOSURE, Boston University School of Medicine researchers Mark Eller et al. suggest in scientific correspondence published in the Dec. 1 issue of Nature. The study, "DNA damage and melanogenesis," postulates that "topical application of pTpT [dipyrimidine dithymidylic acid] or other dinucleotides or DNA fragments may provide a protective tan for human skin without prior exposure to damaging ultraviolet irradiation."
