Inadequate fluid intake is assumed to be a trigger of water-loss dehydration, which is a major health risk in aged and geriatric populations. Thus, there is a need to search for easy to use diagnostic...
Acute exposure of skin to UV-B causes DNA damage and sunburn erythema in both mice and humans. Previous studies documented time-of-day-related differences in sunburn responses after UV-B exposure in m...
Health-optimum-exposure index (HOEI) is proposed to assess if the prescribed amount of vitamin D3 (target value) could be synthesized in the human skin without erythema appearance. It is defined as th...
Test and evaluate a new diagnostic method (SRM-MS/MS: Selected Reaction Monitoring- Mass spectrometry) for Lyme Borreliosis on human skin biopsies. Patients included are those with the ear...
The goal of this research program is to develop a simple, noninvasive diagnostic device for assessing skin pathology without the need for a biopsy. The device being studied is a single sys...
There is no previous study on the minimal erythema dose of UVB irradiation in Chinese people. We will investigate the correlation of skin phototype, constitutive skin color, facultative sk...
Epidermis that lacks moisture and/or sebum presents as dry skin, which is often characterized by a pattern of fine lines, scaling and itching. In dry skin, the barrier function may be comp...
With the increasing tourism and adventure travel into extreme environments comes the need to reassess the required protection against ultraviolet (UV) radiation and possible other oxidativ...
The evaluation of incidents involving the loss of function of a device. These evaluations are used for a variety of purposes such as to determine the failure rates, the causes of failures, costs of failures, and the reliability and maintainability of devices.
Any of a variety of eruptive skin disorders characterized by erythema, oozing, vesiculation, and scaling. Etiology is varied.
Incision of tissues for injection of medication or for other diagnostic or therapeutic procedures. Punctures of the skin, for example may be used for diagnostic drainage; of blood vessels for diagnostic imaging procedures.
Skin diseases affecting or involving the cutaneous blood vessels and generally manifested as inflammation, swelling, erythema, or necrosis in the affected area.
Classification system for assessing impact injury severity developed and published by the American Association for Automotive Medicine. It is the system of choice for coding single injuries and is the foundation for methods assessing multiple injuries or for assessing cumulative effects of more than one injury. These include Maximum AIS (MAIS), Injury Severity Score (ISS), and Probability of Death Score (PODS).
