Medium-dose ultraviolet A1 phototherapy improves SCORAD index and increases mRNA expression of interleukin-4 without direct effect on human β defensin-1, interleukin-10, and interleukin-31.


BACKGROUND Effectiveness of ultraviolet (UV)A1 in flares of atopic dermatitis (AD) is thought to influence the expression of cytokines involved in its pathogenesis. The aim of the study was to investigate whether mRNA expression of human β defensin-1 (hβD-1) correlates with that of interleukin (IL)-4, IL-10, and IL-31 in skin lesions in AD before and after… (More)
