    Hi Catherine,

    So I just read a new study that if true can be quite scary for those like myself who had a positive prognostic factor….would love you thoughts on this!

    If you just copy and paste that into the search engine.

    Sorry not sure how to attach stuff from my iPad….

    I’m uncertain why you would be alarmed at this study, as it admits: It’s neither clear what’s being transferred in the exchange nor why it happens. And the team’s laboratory findings don’t yet confirm that these same interactions occur in humans.

    We aren’t zebra fish nor mice. Until a large study is completed in humans, only then do you look further at the data.

    Probably a good idea not to be reading a lot about melanoma research until it is more refined and comes from a truly reliable source.

    So please don’t worry.
