Summary of "Impact of Long Wavelength Ultraviolet A1 and Visible Light on Light-Skinned Individuals."

Solar radiation is known to be a major contributor to the development of skin cancer. Most sunscreen formulations, including those with broad spectrum, offer minimal protection in long wavelength ultraviolet A1 (UVA1; 370-400 nm) and visible light (VL; 400-700 nm) domain. There is limited information regarding the impact of this broad waveband (VL+UVA1, 370-700 nm) on those with light skin. In this study, ten healthy adult subjects with Fitzpatrick skin phototypes I-III were enrolled. On day 0, subjects' lower back was exposed to a VL+UVA1 dose of 480 J/cm . A statistically significant increase in erythema immediately after irradiation compared to subjects' baseline non-irradiated skin was observed. Clinically perceptible erythema with VL+UVA1 is a novel finding since the erythemogenic spectrum of sunlight has primarily been attributed to ultraviolet B and short wavelength ultraviolet A (320-340 nm). The results emphasize the need for protection against this part of the solar spectra and warrant further investigation. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The use of ultraviolet electromagnetic radiation in the treatment of disease, usually of the skin. This is the part of the sun's spectrum that causes sunburn and tanning. Ultraviolet A, used in PUVA, is closer to visible light and less damaging than Ultraviolet B, which is ionizing.

Techniques using energy such as radio frequency, infrared light, laser light, visible light, or acoustic energy to transfer information without the use of wires, over both short and long distances.

A technique used to measure the rate of physiological activity plotted against wavelength of light. An action spectrum depicts the most effective wavelength of light (also known as spectral sensitivity) that is required for each specific process.

That portion of the electromagnetic spectrum in the visible, ultraviolet, and infrared range.

An optical source that emits photons in a coherent beam. Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation (LASER) is brought about using devices that transform light of varying frequencies into a single intense, nearly nondivergent beam of monochromatic radiation. Lasers operate in the infrared, visible, ultraviolet, or X-ray regions of the spectrum.
