Intracellular deoxyribonucleic acid--modifying activity of intermittent phototherapy.

Abstract

Phototherapy is capable of damaging the genetic material of eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells at fluences considerably less than that received by irradiated infants. It has been suggested that intermittent phototherapy, with varying on-off cycles, may offer theoretical advantages since the total light dosage received by the exposed infant is reduced. The… (More)
