Summary:
A clinical study highlighting the efficacy of Triple Protection Factor Broad Spectrum Sunscreen, TPF 50, to prevent skin sun damage and Non-Melanoma Skin Cancer (NMSC) has been released. In this head-to-head comparison study, investigators found that TPF50 was more effective than both the main DNA repair and AO existing products.

Journal of Drugs in Dermatology (JDD) released a clinical study highlighting the efficacy of Triple Protection Factor Broad Spectrum Sunscreen, TPF 50, to prevent skin sun damage and Non-Melanoma Skin Cancer (NMSC). In this head-to-head comparison study, investigators Enzo Emanuele MD, PhD, James M. Spencer MD, MS and Martin Braun MD found that TPF50 was more effective than both the main DNA repair and AO existing products.

Continued exposure to ultraviolet radiation (UVR) is one of the major risk factors for photo-aging and the development of non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC). Mainstream sunscreens cannot ensure a complete protection against all molecular lesions associated with UVR exposure, making the emergence of TPF 50 a significant advance in preventive science.

"JDD offers one of the fastest routes for disseminating dermatologic information. The JDD is pleased to publish this relevant, timely breakthrough research for dermatologists. This new information is important, very beneficial and is another treatment in the dermatologist's armamentarium in preventing skin cancers," said Dr. Robins, Editor-in-Chief and Professor Emeritus of Dermatology at New York University School of Medicine.
