The effects of ultraviolet (UV) irradiation on plasma levels of carotenoids and vitamin A in human subjects were investigated in two crossover trials. UV exposures were given on 11 r 12 days of a 2-wk period. The 12 female and 12 male subjects received mean cumulative UV-A (320-400 nm) doses of 17.8 +/- 1.9 J/cm2 and 21.0 +/- 3.3 J/cm2 to the anterior and posterior sides of the body, respectively. UV-B (280-320 nm) doses were equivalent to 10% of UV-A doses given. Significant reductions in… 
Effects of controlled exposure of sunlight on plasma and skin levels of beta-carotene.
TLDR
It is concluded that sunlight influences the beta-carotene and alpha-tocopherol content of blood and tissues.
Carotenoid supplementation reduces erythema in human skin after simulated solar radiation exposure.
TLDR
The present data suggest that supplementation with natural carotenoids may partially protect human skin from UVA- and UVB-induced erythema, although the magnitude of the protective effect is modest.
Carotenoid Supplementation Reduces Erythema in Human Skin After Simulated Solar Radiation Exposure (44476)
TLDR
The present data suggest that supplementation with natural carotenoids may partially protect human skin from UVAand UVB-induced erythema, although the magnitUde of the protective effect is modest.
Effect of UV exposure and beta-carotene supplementation on delayed-type hypersensitivity response in healthy older men.
TLDR
Suberythemic UV exposure was immunosuppressive, as measured by DTH response, in healthy older men as in younger men, and the finding that stronger DTH responses were associated with higher plasma betaC concentrations in both UV and non-UV subjects further supports a role for this nutrient in immunomodulation.
Effect of beta-carotene supplementation on photosuppression of delayed-type hypersensitivity in normal young men.
TLDR
It is concluded that beta-carotene protects against photosuppression of immune function and was significantly suppressed in the placebo group after UV treatments.
Effect of beta‐carotene supplementation on the human sunburn reaction
TLDR
Oral beta‐carotene supplementation is unlikely to modify the severity of cutaneous photodamage in normal individuals to a clinically meaningful degree, and provided no clinically or histologically detectable protection against a 3 MED sunburn reaction.
Effect of ff 1-carotene supplementation on photosuppression of delayed-type hypersensitivity in normal young men 13
The aim ofthis study was to examine whether f3-carotene protects against the immunosuppression seen with long-wave ultraviolet-light (UV-A) exposure. Free-living, healthy men, aged 19-39 y received
Dietary lutein reduces ultraviolet radiation-induced inflammation and immunosuppression.
TLDR
It is found that compared to mice fed the standard laboratory diet, mice fed dietary lutein demonstrated significant inhibition of ear swelling owing to UVB radiation, which may contribute to the defense against some of the deleterious effects of solar radiation.
Beneficial Long-Term Effects of Combined Oral/Topical Antioxidant Treatment with the Carotenoids Lutein and Zeaxanthin on Human Skin: A Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Study
TLDR
Oral administration of lutein may provide better protection than that afforded by topical application of this antioxidant when measured by changes in lipid peroxidation and photoprotective activity in the skin following UV light irradiation.
