Ultraviolet (UV) irradiation of the skin causes both inflammation and alterations in the skin immune system. There is increasing experimental evidence that UV-induced skin inflammation is influenced by the sensory nervous system and the neuroendocrine system in the skin. The resulting complex network of cytokines, chemokines, neuropeptides, neuropeptide-degrading enzymes, neurohormones, and other inflammatory mediators mediate photodermatitis and cutaneous inflammation. Neuropeptides such as… CONTINUE READING
