Drug-Induced Photosensitivity—An Update: Culprit Drugs, Prevention and Management
A large number of medications have been implicated as causes of photosensitivity, many with convincing clinical and scientific supporting evidence, including the results of phototesting, photopatch testing and rechallenge testing.
Drug-Induced Photosensitivity—From Light and Chemistry to Biological Reactions and Clinical Symptoms
The chemical and biological basis of drug-induced photosensitivity is reviewed, including the chemical properties, the influence of individual ranges of sunlight, the presence of melanin biopolymers, and the defense mechanisms of particular types of tested cells.
