DNA Repair Activity in the Skin of Day and Night Shift Workers

2019-10-16 10:39:33 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to test how the skin of night shift workers responds to artificial sunlight (ultraviolet B radiation; UVB) at two different times of the day in comparison to normal day shift workers. After the skin biopsies are obtained, they will be brought to the laboratory to be exposed to UVB radiation and to measure UVB responses.

Effect of Solar-Simulated Ultraviolet Radiation on Gene Expression in Unprotected and Sunscreen-Protected Skin of Healthy Adults With Fitzpatrick Skin Type II

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 Versus Narrowband Ultraviolet B Plus Ultraviolet A1 for Atopic Eczema

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...

Ultraviolet Exposure, Antioxidant Use and Skin Erythema at Extreme High Altitude

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...

Study to Compare Different Light Therapies (Narrowband Ultraviolet B vs PUVA) for Hand and Foot Skin Diseases.

Hand and foot skin diseases, such as dermatitis and psoriasis, that do not respond to topical creams can be treated with ultraviolet light therapy. Topical psoralen plus ultraviolet A (PU...

Single-Blind Study Determining the Efficacy of Polypodium Leucotomos Extract Supplement in Decreasing Ultraviolet A (UVA) Premutagenic and Photoaging Markers

With this study we will like to determine if taking a dose of the study medication, called Polypodium leucotomos (PL), prevents some of the changes in the skin caused by the adverse effect...

Quantification of ultraviolet (UV) radiation in the shade and in direct sunlight.

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 s...

In vivo Change of Keratin-Bound Molecules in the Human Stratum Corneum following Exposure to Ultraviolet Radiation.

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 ...

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 ultr...

Ultraviolet radiation exposure during daylight Photodynamic Therapy.

Daylight photodynamic therapy (dPDT) is an effective treatment for field-change actinic keratoses (AK), with similar efficacy to conventional PDT but lower patient pain scores. Whilst AK occur consequ...

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.

Electromagnetic radiation which does not produce ions in matter through which it passes. Its wavelengths are generally greater than those of far ultraviolet radiation and range through the longest radio waves.

Microscopy in which the image is formed by ultraviolet radiation and is displayed and recorded by means of photographic film.

Electromagnetic or corpuscular radiation capable of producing ions, directly or indirectly, in its passage through matter. The wavelengths are equal to or smaller than those of short (far) ultraviolet radiation and include gamma and X-rays and high-energy elementary particles.

The process of aging due to changes in the structure and elasticity of the skin over time. It may be a part of physiological aging or it may be due to the effects of ultraviolet radiation, usually through exposure to sunlight.
