BACKGROUND Photo(chemo)therapy is widely used to treat psoriasis, the pathogenesis of which might be caused by an imbalance of Th17 cells/regulatory T cells (Treg). In the present study, we evaluated the effects of photo(chemo)therapy on the Th17/Treg balance and Treg function. METHODS Peripheral blood was obtained from psoriasis patients treated with(More)
We developed a novel phototherapy device based on an ultraviolet light emitting diode (UV LED) with a peak wavelength of 365 nm and the full width at half maximum of 10 nm. The equipment comprised a 16 x 16 (50 cm x 50 cm) UV LED matrix. The system was designed to irradiate only the diseased part of the skin. To evaluate the characteristics of this device,(More)
The differences of understanding of words among individuals often lead to miscommunication or misimpression. These differences are dependent on individual subjectivity. This paper proposes a method that visualizes the relationships of impression words employed to evaluate the same objects in semantic differential method. The proposed method applies the(More)
