The CHOCOLATE TOUR supports cancer research, and through this support, some significant scientific discoveries have been made in skin cancer research over the last year. Melanoma is the most deadly form of skin cancer and because we are out on bikes in the sun, skin cancer is a particular concern to cyclists. Below is a link to a recent news release from Penn State regarding a discovery made with partial support from Chocolate Tour research funding. This discovery identified a novel drug combination to activate natural killer cells in the immune system to manage cancer (the link to the scientific article is in the press release).
