Early detection Clark
Stages Corrective
Drug Sensitization Gene
I: epidermis
II: papillary dermis
III: filling
IV: reticular dermis
V: deep tissue Therapy

-Repair -Target phenotype
-Stop or reverse growth Current treatments = defective

Lasting cure
Medical potential
Not limited to humans Less drug synthesis Cons Risky
Immune overactivation
