UVB-induced immune suppression and infection with Schistosoma mansoni.

Abstract

Irradiation with ultraviolet B (UVB, 290-320 nm) causes a systemic immunosuppression of cell-mediated immunity. The question of whether UV immunosuppression modulates the course of infectious diseases is important because UVB levels in sunlight are sufficient to predict significant UV-induced immunosuppression at most latitudes. We have investigated the… (More)
