The effects of NB-UVB on the hair follicle-derived neural crest stem cells differentiating into melanocyte lineage in vitro.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Narrow-band UVB (NB-UVB) is an effective therapeutic option in the treatment of vitiligo. Despite the apparent clinical efficacy, the underlying mechanism of how topical NB-UVB induces repigmentation in vitiligo has not been clearly elucidated.
