Ultraviolet (UV) radiation is associated with negative health effects, including sun damage and skin cancer. The purpose of this study is to compare the protective effects of the shade provided by a sun umbrella versus that provided by a tree. Sun sensors that register the level and dose of UV radiation were placed in the shade and in direct sunlight. Measurements were recorded every half hour between the hours of 12:30 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. in Sacramento, California. The results suggest that the level of UV r...
Ultraviolet (UV) radiation damages the stratum corneum (SC) and disrupts the skin barrier. The damaged skin changes in the molecular composition of the SC, including its water content. However, it is difficult to examine the in vivo SC changes with existing methods, so those have not been well characterized. Therefore, we investigated in vivo changes of UV-induced SC damage using confocal Raman spectroscopy.
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' lo...
Ultraviolet radiation (UVR) emitted during arc welding frequently causes keratoconjunctivitis and skin erythema. The extent of the hazard of UVR varies depending on the welding process and conditions. Therefore, it is important to identify the levels of UVR present under different conditions. The purpose of this study was to investigate the degree of hazard of UVR emitted by the different types of arc welding of cast iron frequently used in industry.
Ultraviolet radiation (UVR) causes solar lentigines (SL) and skin cancer (SC) in humans. The association between measured lifetime UVR dose and SC has not been investigated. This study investigated this relation through their common relationship to SL.
Skin cancer, including melanoma, basal cell carcinoma and cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma, has one of the highest global incidences of any form of cancer. In 2016 more than 16,000 people were diagnosed with melanoma in the UK. Over the last decade the incidence of melanoma has increased by 50% in the UK, and about one in ten melanomas are diagnosed at a late stage. Among the keratinocyte carcinomas (previously known as non-melanoma skin cancers), basal cell carcinoma is the most common cancer amongst Cauc...
To investigate the association between shade coverage in early childhood education and care (ECEC) centres and pre-school children's physical activity, outdoor time and ultraviolet radiation (UVR) exposure.
To investigate the influence of unilateral ultraviolet radiation (UVR) exposure on the unexposed, partner eye in vivo. To characterize the immunological cross-talk between the eyes and verify a sympathizing reaction of the partner eye via a neurokinin-dependent signaling pathway of substance P and its neurokinin-1 receptor (NKR-1) and/or monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1).
To evaluate the effect of ultraviolet A radiation on retinal function and structure after the corneal collagen crosslinking procedure.
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 radiation dose during outdoor exposure. To facilitate measurements of dose and exposure, non-scientific and research-grade instruments measuring different exposure parameters of solar radiation are commercially available. These devices have been marketed as weather stations, purpose-built UVI display stations, portabl...
Colored tattoos are common among young adults worldwide. However, ultraviolet radiation (UVR) may affect tattoos by causing abnormal healing, premature fading, scabbing, dryness, and scarring. Although tattoo artists provide sun safety information to their clients along with aftercare instructions to prevent premature tattoo fading, there is insufficient evidence to support these findings. We present a case of a white male with premature fading of his colored tattoo due to excessive UVR exposure. This artic...
Cryptochromes (CRYs) are flavin-binding proteins that sense blue and near-ultraviolet light and participate in the photoreactions of organisms and the regulation of biological clocks. In this study, the complete open reading frame (ORF) of CiCRY-DASH1 (GenBank ID MK392361), encoding one kind of cryptochrome, was cloned from the Antarctic microalga Chlamydomonas sp. ICE-L. The quantitative real-time PCR study showed that the CiCRY-DASH1 had the highest expression at 5 °C and salinity of 32‰. The CiCRY-DA...
Actinic prurigo is a chronic photodermatosis of unclear pathogenesis. Epidermal Langerhans cell resistance to migration after ultraviolet radiation exposure has been proposed as a possible mechanism, as occurs in polymorphic light eruption patients. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of solar simulated radiation (SSR) on epidermal Langerhans cells in the uninvolved skin of actinic prurigo patients.
Age-related cataract is the major cause of blindness worldwide. Both genetic and environmental factors contribute to the disease. Genetic variation in the Ephrin type-A receptor 2 (EPHA2) gene is associated with the risk of age-related cataract in multiple populations, and exposure to ultraviolet-B (UV-B) radiation is a well-established risk factor for the disease. Epha2 knockout and UV-B radiation independently lead to cataract in mice, and UV-B radiation reportedly alters EPHA2 expression in cultured cell...
Xeroderma pigmentosum (XP) is a rare genetic disorder, which is characterized by hyper-sensitivity to solar ultraviolet (UV) radiation. Clinical consequences of sun exposure are skin lesions and an increased risk of developing skin cancer. Genetic studies have identified eight genes associated with xeroderma pigmentosum. The proteins encoded by these genes are mainly involved in DNA repair mechanisms.
Since the beginning of life on Earth, cyanobacteria have been exposed to natural ultraviolet-A radiation (UV-A, 315-400 nm) and ultraviolet-B radiation (UV-B, 280-315 nm), affecting their cells' biomolecules. These photoautotrophic organisms have needed to evolve to survive and thus, have developed different mechanisms against ultraviolet radiation. These mechanisms include UVR avoidance, DNA repair, and cell protection by producing photoprotective compounds like Scytonemin, carotenoids, and Mycosporine...
Sun Protection Factor (SPF) and UVA Protection Factor (UVA-PF) are determined using in vivo tests, with high exposures of subjects to ultraviolet (UV) radiation. Hybrid diffuse reflectance spectroscopy (HDRS) enables estimation of both indices using only trace amounts UVA. However, the equipment requires two expensive monochromators that must synchronously scan the spectrum.
The phenomenon of photoadaptation to narrow-band ultraviolet B (NB-UVB) radiation has been previously described in vitiligo and has usually been clinically measured by the assessment of the minimal erythema dose (MED) after phototesting.
Trigonelline, a naturally occurring alkaloidal agent protects ultraviolet-B (UV-B) irradiation induced apoptotic cell death in human skin fibroblasts via attenuation of oxidative stress, restoration of cellular calcium homeostasis and prevention of endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress.
It has been widely reported that ultraviolet-B (UV-B) radiation is the main extrinsic etiological agent that causes skin photodamage. UV-B exposure mediated photodamage (photo-aging/photo-carcinogenesis) to human skin is caused due to several physiological events at tissue, cellular and molecular levels that lead to impairment of skin function and integrity. In the present study, we investigated the protective role of Trigonelline (TG) against UV-B induced photo-damage in Human Dermal Fibroblasts (Hs68 cell...
Endocrine therapy without radiation therapy is considered appropriate for women age 70 or above with low-risk hormone-positive breast cancer following partial mastectomy. However, some patients may prefer radiation without endocrine therapy, for which there is minimal modern data. We modeled the comparative efficacy of aromatase inhibition alone without radiation versus radiation alone without endocrine therapy.
Radiation-induced cancer is an ongoing and significant problem, with sources that include clinics worldwide in which 3.1 billion radiology exams are performed each year, as well as a variety of other scenarios such as space travel and nuclear cleanup. These radiation exposures are typically anticipated, and the exposure is typically well below 1 Gy. When radiation-induced (actually ROS-induced) DNA mutation is prevented, then so too are downstream radiation-induced cancers. Currently, there is no protection...
Radiation-induced acute skin injury and consequent fibrosis are common complications of cancer radiotherapy and radiation accidents. Stromal cell-derived factor-1α (SDF-1α) and its receptor, CXC chemokine receptor 4 (CXCR4) have been shown to be involved in multiple cellular events. However, the role of SDF-1α/CXCR4 axis in radiation-induced acute injury and fibrosis of skin has not been reported. In this study, we found that the expression of SDF-1α and CXCR4 was significantly increased in irradiated s...
Autophagy is known as an intracellular clean up system necessary to maintain homeostasis of the skin. Many studies have pointed out the relationship between aging and the inactivation of autophagy function, which suggests that the inactivation of autophagy occurs in aged skin. However, the aging process of the skin is complicated compared with other organs, because the skin is localized at the border between the inside of the body and the environment. Thus, skin aging is strongly affected by environmental f...
This review examined the implications of using sunscreen photoprotection on 25(OH)D formation and determined the best photoprotective method to reduce the risk of skin cancer caused by ultraviolet radiation (UVR). Based on previous studies on 25(OH)D formation after use of different amounts of sunscreen and different doses of UVR for approximately one week to different body areas it is possible to estimate the amount of 25(OH)D formed after a week's holiday in Southern and Northern Europe.
The major source of vitamin D in humans is the ultraviolet radiation-dependent cutaneous synthesis of cholecalciferol; however, low vitamin D status is common in Europe even at mid-latitudes. The UV-radiation that reached the Earth's surface near Milan between May 2006 and December 2018 was retrieved from the TEMIS database and matched with the serum vitamin D levels measured in 30 400 people living in the same area. The results showed a high percentage of insufficient vitamin D levels (measured as 25-hyd...
