Ultraviolet radiation-induced suppression of contact hypersensitivity in relation to padimate O and oxybenzone.

Contact hypersensitivity (CHS) in mice can be induced by cutaneous sensitization followed by elicitation via ear-painting with trinitrochlorobenzene (TNCB). This CHS reaction is systemic and can be suppressed by exposure of mice to suberythemogenic doses of 280-315 nm radiation. In this study, we investigated whether a commercially available water-resistant… CONTINUE READING
