Born with Xeroderma Pigmentosum (XP), French twins Thomas and Vincent Seris cannot be exposed to the sun and its ultraviolet (UV) light, which could provoke precocious cancers due to an autosomal recessive genetic disorder of DNA repair.

For the last year, they have been testing a new protective mask which is transparent and ventilated and developed by several hospitals in France.
