Information on the variation in carcinogenicity with wavelength is crucial in risk assessments for skin cancers induced by UV radiation. Until recently the wavelength (lambda) dependencies of other detrimental UV effects, such as sunburn, have been used as substitutes. Direct information on the lambda dependency can only be obtained from animal experiments. To this end we accumulated a large data set on skin tumors induced by chronic UV exposure of albino SKH:HR1 mice (14 different broadband UV… CONTINUE READING
