Background: Blue light irradiation reduces the proliferation of keratinocytes and modulates T-cell immune response in vitro and has been shown to reduce the severity of psoriasis vulgaris (Pv) in two clinical trials. Objective: Evaluation of safety and efficacy of long-term UV-free blue light treatment at home for mild Pv. Methods: Forty-seven patients with mild Pv were randomized for receiving high-intensity blue light treatment (HI: 453 nm LED, 200 mW/cm2, n = 24) and low-intensity treatment… Expand
