BACKGROUND The results of a recent study suggested that ultraviolet A1 radiation (UVA1R; 340-400 nm) phototherapy for atopic dermatitis works through induction of apoptosis in skin-infiltrating helper T cells, indicating the possibility that other helper T cell-mediated skin diseases may respond to UVA1R as well. OBJECTIVE The purpose of this open pilot study was to assess the therapeutic effectiveness of UVA1 phototherapy for cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL). METHODS UVA1 phototherapy was… CONTINUE READING
