The influence of repeated low-dose ultraviolet B (UVB) radiation, to which we are exposed in daily life, has not been fully clarified, although the damage caused by exposure to high-dose UVB radiation has been well-studied in recent years. To investigate skin damage caused by repeated low-dose exposure, we evaluated the extent of injury to the Langerhans cells which are known to be involved in the cutaneous immune system. The backs of hairless mice were exposed to the following doses of UVB… Expand
Decrease in Langerhans Cells and Increase in Lymph Node Dendritic Cells Following Chronic Exposure of Mice to Suberythemal Doses of Solar Simulated Radiation
TLDR
The main aims of the present study were to determine whether repeated exposure to low doses of SSR would lead to similar changes in cell populations and whether chronic doses ofSSR activate a protective photoadaptation mechanism. Expand
UVB susceptibility as a risk factor to the development of lepromatous leprosy.
TLDR
The results suggest that UVB-susceptibility is a risk factor to the development of lepromatous leprosy (LL). Expand
Effects of ultraviolet radiation on Langerhans cells
TLDR
The aim of the study is to review the literature about the influence of ultraviolet radiation on Langerhans cells and to describe the changes in the phenotype and morphology of LCs. Expand
Tape stripping the stratum corneum for biomarkers of ultraviolet radiation exposure at sub-erythemal dosages: a study in human volunteers
TLDR
SC represents a promising, non-invasive alternative to skin biopsy in detecting UVR-induced changes and might facilitate assessment of the efficacy of preventive measures in the workplace and general population. Expand
Effects of topical tacrolimus 0.03% on long‐term suberythemal ultraviolet B‐irradiated epidermal Langerhans cells in mice
TLDR
The primary manifestation of ocular PV, also described in the reference literature above, is conjunctival hyperaemia with eye pain described by the patients as a foreign body sensation. Expand

TLDR
A retrospective study of six cases of severe recalcitrant atopic dermatitis treated with long-term extracorporeal photopheresis found that co-stimulatory molecule expression and interleukin-10 production by dendritic cells in graft-versus-host disease patients are affected. Expand
Potential role of reduced environmental UV exposure as a driver of the current epidemic of atopic dermatitis.
TLDR
The salubrious effects of suberythemogenic doses of UVB irradiation for the skin barrier are reviewed and how the lack of sufficient UVB exposure could have contributed to the rapid increase in the incidence of AD in developed countries is discussed. Expand
Narrowband Ultraviolet B Light in Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis: A Case Report
TLDR
This work presents a child with cutaneous LCH lesions that responded to ultraviolet light phototherapy with minimal adverse effects or patient discomfort. Expand
Changes of Langerhans cells during skin ageing
TLDR
The obtained results indicate the presence of quantitative and morphological changes of the CD1a+ LC and HLA-DR+ LC during the course of different types of skin ageing. Expand
Protection Against Solar Ultraviolet Radiation in Outdoor Construction Workers: Study Protocol for a Non-randomized Controlled Intervention Study
TLDR
This study is intended to provide evidence of the effectiveness of a technology-driven intervention to increase sunscreen use in outdoor construction workers and increase insight in the UV-protective behavior, external and internal UV-exposure, and the prevalence of NMSC, including AK, in construction workers.

Low-dose ultraviolet-B irradiation depletes human epidermal Langerhans cells.
TLDR
Low-dose UVB irradiation, whether received rapidly or slowly, appears significantly and approximately equally to deplete human epidermal Langerhans cell numbers as measured by CD1a expression. Expand
Ultraviolet light depletes surface markers of Langerhans cells.
TLDR
The finding that LC surface markers and to a lesser extent the cells themselves are particularly susceptible to UV irradiation has important implications in view of previous findings that LC are potent stimulators of antigen-specific and allogeneic T cell activation. Expand
Role of excision repair in UVB-induced depletion and recovery of human epidermal Langerhans cells.
TLDR
An essential role for excisional repair in the UVB-induced depletion, recovery, and maintenance of the epidermal Langerhans cell population is indicated and a possible, but not confirmed, relationship between depletion of LangerHans cells and earlier photocarcinogenesis in xeroderma pigmentosum is not confirmed. Expand
Ultraviolet B-induced local immunosuppression of contact hypersensitivity is modulated by ultraviolet irradiation and hapten application.
TLDR
The suppression of contact hypersensitivity was significantly greater in young than in old mice, and the effects of the following factors on induction of dinitrofluorobenzene contact hypers sensitivity in mice were investigated. Expand
Low‐dose ultraviolet‐B irradiation depletes human epidermal Langerhans cells
TLDR
Low‐dose UVB irradiation, whether received rapidly or slowly, appears significantly and approximately equally to deplete human epidermal Langerhans cell numbers as measured by CDla expression. Expand
Sunscreens protect epidermal Langerhans cells and Thy-1+ cells but not local contact sensitization from the effects of ultraviolet light.
TLDR
In contrast to the effects on LC, Padimate O, but not 2-EHMC, protected Thy-1+ dEC from UV exposure in both mouse strains, but neither protected against the development of local immunosuppression using a contact sensitivity model. Expand
Ultraviolet B light-induced alterations in epidermal Langerhans cells are mediated in part by tumor necrosis factor-alpha.
TLDR
Circumstantial evidence, based on time of onset of numerical and morphologic changes among Langerhans cells following epidermal treatment, suggests that TNF alpha is the mediator of UVB-induced changes. Expand
Susceptibility to effects of UVB radiation on induction of contact hypersensitivity as a risk factor for skin cancer in humans.
TLDR
It is proposed that UVB-susceptibility, as it is defined in this hapten system, may be a risk factor for the development of skin cancer. Expand

TLDR
This model is modified by exposing the mice to a progressively increasing dose of UVB that promotes pigmentation with a marked reduction of skin irritation, which makes it possible to use this model for evaluating new compounds with skin-depigmenting activity. Expand
8-hydroxy-2'-deoxyguanosine is increased in epidermal cells of hairless mice after chronic ultraviolet B exposure.
TLDR
The formation of 8-OHdG after UVB exposure appears to be regulated by at least three pathways: photodynamic action, lipid peroxidation, and inflammation and may play a role in sunlight-induced skin carcinogenesis. Expand
