MoleSafe USA Opens Second Location in Albuquerque, New Mexico
Date:4/6/2009

Albuquerque the First of Five New Markets Slated to Feature MoleSafe Skin Cancer Detection Facilities in 2009

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., April 6 /PRNewswire/ -- MoleSafe (www.molesafe.com), a company that offers an advanced skin cancer detection program, announced today it has opened its second U.S. location in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The company opened its first U.S. location in Millburn, New Jersey, in 2008. MoleSafe originated in New Zealand, which is the melanoma capital of the world. The company is scheduled to open in five new markets in the coming year. The Albuquerque location is overseen by Donald Harville, MD, a Board-certified dermatologist.

"As skin cancer continues to become increasingly pervasive in the U.S., taking thousands of lives each year, it is imperative that Americans take precaution," said Dr. Richard Bezozo, president of MoleSafe USA. "MoleSafe provides the most advanced and thorough skin cancer detection programs in the world. We're excited to open our second location in Albuquerque, while expanding our services to reach more cities and help save more lives."

"MoleSafe's advanced program is a proven answer to skin cancer detection, specifically melanoma, which is the deadliest of all skin cancers," said Dr. Donald Harville, manager of the Albuquerque MoleSafe. "When I learned about MoleSafe's technology and system, I was anxious to help bring it to Albuquerque. New Mexico ranks as one of the sunniest states in the country, and thus has one of the highest rates of sun-induced skin cancer."

MoleSafe's four-pronged detection program is utilized by more than 40 melanoma screening centers around the world. To date, MoleSafe has archived more than one million lesions, and close to two and half million lesion images, into its central database. These images have been made available to Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and other top institutions in the U.S. for melanoma research and study. Additionally, clinical studies have shown that the number of melanoma cases detected by the MoleMap technology could be up to 15 times greater than those detected via conventional techniques.

The MoleSafe procedure represents a new standard of care and is part of a life-long program for the early detection of melanoma. It has four key elements:

  • Risk assessment: Using its database, MoleSafe has developed a risk assessment model that can help identify patients who may be at higher risk of melanoma;
  • Serial Digital Dermoscopy: Individual moles are imaged microscopically, and tagged to their location on the body for subsequent diagnosis, identification and comparison over time;
  • Diagnosis and Management: The patient's complete skin record, including digital images and clinical information, is sent via a secure tele-dermatology network to MoleSafe's international panel of world-class melanoma dermatologists (dermoscopists) for analysis and reporting. Patients and their designated doctors receive their reports and their digital melanogram. MoleSafe should be considered an integral part of a complete surveillance program for the at-risk melanoma patient.
  • Education and Follow-up: The MoleSafe melanographer, a trained nurse, nurse practitioner or physician assistant educates patients about the risks of sun exposure, and helps generate a continuing partnership between MoleSafe, the patient and his/her doctor.

The MoleSafe Albuquerque location will implement the licensed skin cancer detection program and will be managed by Dr. Donald Harville. Dr. Harville holds his M.D. Degree from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School and his M.S. Degree in Dermatology from the University of Minnesota.

About MoleSafe

MoleSafe (www.molesafe.com) is a state-of-the-art procedure involving the digital imaging, archiving and diagnosis of moles and other suspicious lesions. The procedure utilizes a combination of high resolution dermoscopy imaging technology that uses high intensity light to penetrate through the surface of the skin to show the structure of moles (and other lesions) and a dermatologist's expert evaluation of the images. In addition to the increased diagnostic accuracy associated with dermoscopy, MoleSafe is able to detect at an earlier stage any new, changing and/or suspicious lesions by monitoring and comparing the images over time. While MoleSafe has the ability to identify all skin cancers, its primary focus is on the early detection of melanoma.
