A Chinese boy was identified to be suffering from progeria (Hutchinson-Gilford syndrome), the first case of the disease ever reported in China. Cells originating from the patient had a reduced amount of unscheduled DNA synthesis after irradiation with ultraviolet light (UV). The fractions of the progeria cells surviving against UV irradiation measured by colony-forming ability, and the host-cell reactivation capacity of the progeria cells, measured by the plaque formation of UV-irradiated herpes simplex virus were lower than those measured in normal cells. The progeria cells appear to have a reduced capacity to repair UV excision damage.
