We investigated associations between ocular ultraviolet (UV) radiation exposure dose and cataract opacities among Han people living in China and Taiwan, to assess the effects of UV exposure intensity.

In this study, the risk of cataract removal surgery was assessed in a cohort of workers occupationally exposed to ionizing radiation over a prolonged period. The study cohort includes 22,377 workers o...
Knowledge of when to actively modify outdoor sun protective behaviour is crucial for sun safety and should be based upon personal susceptibility to sunburn and the intensity of the ultraviolet radiati...
The relation of radiation exposure (dose) with acute radiation syndrome (ARS) depends on many factors. In this overview, we reconsider (1) radiation exposure characteristics (e.g. radiation quality, f...
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...
This study aims to compare the expression of keratins before and after application of sulforaphane (SF) to determine whether this agent alters skin fragility seen in both intrinsic and ext...
RATIONALE: Testing of skin that has been exposed to artificial sunlight may help in understanding the genetic processes involved in the development of skin cancer. PURPOSE: This trial is ...
Narrowband ultraviolet B phototherapy is the "standard" phototherapy for atopic eczema; ultraviolet A1 is sometimes used but is not a widely available treatment. We do not know the most im...
RATIONALE: Certain drugs, such as doxycycline and voriconazole, may cause phototoxicity when a patient is exposed to ultraviolet (UV) radiation (sunlight). Studying the pattern of gene exp...
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.
A condition caused by a brief whole body exposure to more than one sievert dose equivalent of radiation. Acute radiation syndrome is initially characterized by ANOREXIA; NAUSEA; VOMITING; but can progress to hematological, gastrointestinal, neurological, pulmonary, and other major organ dysfunction.
Administration of the total dose of radiation (RADIATION DOSAGE) in parts, at timed intervals.
The dose amount of poisonous or toxic substance or dose of ionizing radiation required to kill 50% of the tested population.
The amount of radiation energy that is deposited in a unit mass of material, such as tissues of plants or animal. In RADIOTHERAPY, radiation dosage is expressed in gray units (Gy). In RADIOLOGIC HEALTH, the dosage is expressed by the product of absorbed dose (Gy) and quality factor (a function of linear energy transfer), and is called radiation dose equivalent in sievert units (Sv).
