UVB is widely used to treat psoriasis. Conventional broadband UVB lamps are less effective than narrowband UVB lamps, which have an emission peak at 311 nm. The long-term safety of narrowband UVB phototherapy is uncertain. "Selective" broadband UVB lamps, which have little emission <290 nm, are also available, but have not been adequately compared to narrowband UVB lamps. We performed a randomized comparison of narrowband UVB (TL-01 lamps) and selective broadband UVB (UV6 lamps) in 100 patients… CONTINUE READING
