Fat gene 'linked with skin cancer'

www.gdaguru.com today reports that a gene previously shown to be linked to obesity may also increase the risk of a deadly form of skin cancer, say researchers writing in Nature Genetics. 04-03-2013

Analysis of data from 73,000 people, led by the University of Leeds, found a specific section of the "fat gene" was associated with malignant melanoma.

It is the first time the gene has been linked with a specific disease independently of weight.

Study author, Dr Mark Iles, a senior research fellow at the Leeds Institute of Molecular Medicine, said:
"This is the first time to our knowledge that this major obesity gene, already linked to multiple illnesses, has been linked to melanoma.
"This raises the question whether future research will reveal that the gene has a role in even more diseases?"
