2004 | Prevention of UV-induced skin carcinogenesis by chlorophyll and chlorophyllin | $41,120

To test the hypotheses that oral administration of chlorophyllin or chlorophyll inhibits UV-induced skin carcinogenesis, and inhibits systemic UV-induced immunosuppression. The study design will also reveal the effects of chlorophyllin and chlorophyll on normal immune and inflammatory responses.
