The objective of the study was to compare Bacillus subtilis spore film dosimeters with a Robertson Berger UV meter (RB meter) and diary records for assessing personal UV-B doses during a 13-day heliotherapy (HT) for atopic dermatitis (AD). In addition, the relationship between the personal UV-B dose and change in serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) was studied. Altogether 21 adult patients with AD completed the study arranged in the Canary Islands, either in January or March 2005. The spore… CONTINUE READING
