Elizabeth Taylor Cured Of Skin Cancer

Elizabeth Taylor was treated this summer for a curable form of skin cancer and her doctor determined the actress now has no sign of the disease, her spokesman said Friday.

Taylor, 70, received radiation therapy for basal cell carcinoma, publicist Warren Cowan said in a statement that included comment from the actress' physician.

"Miss Taylor is fine and there's no evidence of any residual disease," Dr. Ronald Thompson said.

No other details were released.
