This webinar will focus on topical treatment options for actinic keratosis (AK) and superficial basal cell carcinoma. Professor Stockfleth is acknowledged as one the primary experts in this field and will cover topics as diverse as the Hedgehog signalling pathway and the role thereof in basal cell carcinoma, and the importance of field therapy in AK treatment. While AK in isolation is not considered to be very injurious to health, it is not known which lesions may progress to squamous cell carcinoma.
