The standard erythema dose: a new photobiological concept
TLDR
An editorial concerning a newly proposed photobiological term, the standard erythema dose (SED), is presented to stimulate discussion about what appears to be a more useful measure of erythemogenic ultraviolet radiation. Expand
Analysis of G1/S checkpoint regulators in metastatic melanoma
TLDR
It is concluded that although none of the analyzed cell cycle regulators could be singled out as a major prognostic factor, G1/S checkpoint abnormalities remain one of the most significant factors in the development of malignant melanoma. Expand
XPD exon 10 and 23 polymorphisms and DNA repair in human skin in situ.
TLDR
Data did not show consistent XPD genotype-specific differences in DNA repair rates among all subjects, but the exon 23 C allele was associated with depressed repair among subjects aged 50 years or older and the result was consistent with both dimers. Expand
Erythroderma: a follow-up of fifty cases.
TLDR
It is concluded that the underlying causes for erythroderma have remained rather unchanged during several decades, and that the majority of present-day ery Throderma patients can expect a favorable prognosis. Expand
Cancer incidence among Finnish psoriasis patients treated with 8-methoxypsoralen bath PUVA.
TLDR
No association between cutaneous cancer and 8-MOP bath PUVA was found, but the statistical power of this study alone is not adequate to warrant definite conclusions. Expand
Effect of age on the formation and repair of UV photoproducts in human skin in situ.
TLDR
The data suggest that UV-induced DNA photoproduct levels increase with age, and the newly developed 32P-postlabelling method is feasible in molecular epidemiological studies due to its sensitivity, specificity and little amount DNA needed. Expand
Solar ultraviolet (UV) radiation and UV doses received by patients during four-week climate therapy periods in the Canary Islands.
TLDR
The ultraviolet (UV) radiation doses received by 270 psoriasis patients were studied during 4-week climate therapy periods in November, March or April in the Canary Islands to measure the cumulative UV exposure of particular skin sites. Expand
Evening primrose oil in the treatment of atopic eczema: effect on clinical status, plasma phospholipid fatty acids and circulating blood prostaglandins
TLDR
A statistically significant improvement was observed in the overall severity and grade of inflammation and in the percentage of the body surface involved by eczema as well as in dryness and itch in the EPO group. Expand
Disease associations in polymorphous light eruption. A long-term follow-up study of 94 patients.
TLDR
Polymorphous light eruption is a long-standing slowly ameliorating disease with some tendency to development of autoimmune disease or thyroid disorder, especially in female patients, but the risk for lupus erythematosus is not increased. Expand
ULTRAVIOLET ERYTHEMA SENSITIVITY IN ANAMNESTIC (I‐IV) and PHOTOTESTED (1–4) CAUCASIAN SKIN PHOTOTYPES: THE NEED FOR A NEW CLASSIFICATION SYSTEM
TLDR
The results indicate that, with classification by interrogation, Caucasian skin can reliably be classified into only two subtypes, corresponding to Fitzpatrick phototypes I–III and phototype IV, respectively. Expand
