That portion of the electromagnetic spectrum immediately below the visible range and extending into the x-ray frequencies. The longer wavelengths (near-UV or biotic or vital rays) are necessary for the endogenous synthesis of vitamin D and are also called antirachitic rays; the shorter, ionizing wavelengths (far-UV or abiotic or extravital rays) are viricidal, bactericidal, mutagenic, and carcinogenic and are used as disinfectants.

A malignant skin neoplasm that seldom metastasizes but has potentialities for local invasion and destruction. Clinically it is divided into types: nodular, cicatricial, morphaic, and erythematoid (pagetoid). They develop on hair-bearing skin, most commonly on sun-exposed areas. Approximately 85% are found on the head and neck area and the remaining 15% on the trunk and limbs. (From DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p1471)
A malignant neoplasm derived from cells that are capable of forming melanin, which may occur in the skin of any part of the body, in the eye, or, rarely, in the mucous membranes of the genitalia, anus, oral cavity, or other sites. It occurs mostly in adults and may originate de novo or from a pigmented nevus or malignant lentigo. Melanomas frequently metastasize widely, and the regional lymph nodes, liver, lungs, and brain are likely to be involved. The incidence of malignant skin melanomas is rising rapidly in all parts of the world. (Stedman, 25th ed; from Rook et al., Textbook of Dermatology, 4th ed, p2445)

The condition resulting from the absence or deficiency of LACTASE in the MUCOSA cells of the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT, and the inability to break down LACTOSE in milk for ABSORPTION. Bacterial fermentation of the unabsorbed lactose leads to symptoms that range from a mild indigestion (DYSPEPSIA) to severe DIARRHEA. Lactose intolerance may be an inborn error or acquired.
Formative research for developing targeted skin cancer prevention programs for children in multiethnic Hawaii. (1/289)Skin cancer is a significant and increasing public health problem. Improvement in sun protection practices among children holds great promise for prevention, and parents and caregivers play important roles. Health promotion programs are most likely to succeed when based on a systematic planning process including an understanding of current practices, beliefs, social norms and environments. This article describes formative research used to help develop the SunSmart skin cancer prevention program in Hawaii. Group discussions and interviews were conducted with 216 children in grades 1, 2 and 3, 15 parents, and 27 recreation staff. Children's discussion groups took place in intact classrooms. A combination of quantitative and qualitative methods was used. Multiple raters and an iterative process were used to analyze data from survey forms, observer impressions and audio tapes, and to draw the main conclusions. Sun protection practices in all groups were inconsistent, though general awareness about prevention was widespread. Children reported a reluctance to cover up with long pants and sleeves, and wide-brim hats, and did not understand what skin cancer was. Parents and recreation staff were supportive of education and policy supports, to improve both their own and the children's prevention habits. They were enthusiastic about interactive and creative activities. We conclude that targeted skin cancer prevention messages and strategies for Hawaii's children should promote gradual changes, provide environmental supports, and involve parents and recreation staff. Both the findings and procedures have implications for prevention elsewhere. (+info)
The use of observational methods for monitoring sun-protection activities in schools. (2/289)Evaluation of health promotion interventions aimed at behavioural or environmental change involves assessing change that occurs as a result of the program. Direct observational methods can be used for this purpose and this paper describes three such methods that we pilot tested for use in a 5-year intervention study aimed at reducing sun exposure in primary school children. (1) Monitoring 'No hat, no play' policies. This method involved video taping children in selected school play areas during lunch time and analysing the content of the videos to assess the proportion of children wearing various types of hats. (2) Assessing shade provision in the playground. This method involved taking aerial photographs of each school and using them to estimate the proportion of shade in play areas available to children at lunchtime. (3) Shade use. This involved children wearing polysulphone film badges to measure the amount of UV-B exposure they received during one lunch period, relative to the total possible dose registered on index badges. Each method was implemented successfully, and we demonstrated that the video and aerial photography methods produced highly reproducible results and that all three methods were feasible. These three methods will be used in our intervention study to assess longitudinal change in schools' sun-protection policy and practice. (+info)
Evaluation of an intervention to reduce sun exposure in children: design and baseline results. (3/289)The Kidskin Study is a 5-year intervention study (1995-1999) involving 1,776 5- and 6-year-old children attending 33 primary schools in Perth, Western Australia. The aim of the study is to design, implement, and evaluate an intervention to reduce sun exposure in young children. There are three study groups: a control group, a "moderate intervention" group, and a "high intervention" group. The control schools receive the standard Western Australian health education curriculum, while the moderate and high intervention schools receive a specially designed curricular intervention. In addition, children in the high intervention group receive program materials over the summer holidays, when exposure is likely to be highest, and are offered sun-protective swimwear at low cost. The main outcome measure is the number of nevi on the back. Other outcomes include nevi on the chest (boys only), face, and arms, levels of suntanning, degree of freckling, and sun-related behaviors. At baseline, the three groups were similar with respect to nevi and freckling after adjustment for observer and month of observation. Sun exposure was slightly higher in the high intervention group. The groups were also similar with respect to most potential confounders, although they differed with respect to Southern European ethnicity and parental education. (+info)
Galectin-7 overexpression is associated with the apoptotic process in UVB-induced sunburn keratinocytes. (4/289)Galectin-7 is a beta-galactoside binding protein specifically expressed in stratified epithelia and notably in epidermis, but barely detectable in epidermal tumors and absent from squamous carcinoma cell lines. Galectin-7 gene is an early transcriptional target of the tumor suppressor protein P53 [Polyak, K., Xia, Y., Zweier, J., Kinzler, K. & Vogelstein, B. (1997) Nature (London) 389, 300-305]. Because p53 transcriptional activity is increased by genotoxic stresses we have examined the possible effects of ultraviolet radiations (UVB) on galectin-7 expression in epidermal keratinocytes. The amounts of galectin-7 mRNA and protein are increased rapidly after UVB irradiation of epidermal keratinocytes. The increase of galectin-7 is parallel to P53 stabilization. UVB irradiation of skin reconstructed in vitro and of human skin ex vivo demonstrates that galectin-7 overexpression is associated with sunburn/apoptotic keratinocytes. Transfection of a galectin-7 expression vector results in a significant increase in terminal deoxynucleotidyltransferase-mediated UTP end labeling-positive keratinocytes. The present findings demonstrate a keratinocyte-specific protein involved in the UV-induced apoptosis, an essential process in the maintenance of epidermal homeostasis. (+info)
Oral contraceptive use and risk of melanoma in premenopausal women. (5/289)Melanoma has been increasing in white populations. Incidence rates rise steeply in women until about age 50, suggesting oestrogen as a possible risk factor. Oestrogens can increase melanocyte count and melanin content and cause hyperpigmentation of the skin. We examined prospectively the association between oral contraceptive (OC) use and diagnoses of superficial spreading and nodular melanoma among 183,693 premenopausal white women in the Nurses' Health Study (NHS) and the Nurses' Health Study II (NHS II) cohorts. One hundred and forty six cases were confirmed in NHS during follow-up from 1976 to 1994, and 106 cases were confirmed in NHS II from 1989 to 1995. Skin reaction to sun exposure, sunburn history, mole counts, hair colour, family history of melanoma, parity, height and body mass index were also assessed and included in logistic regression models. A significant twofold increase in risk of melanoma (relative risk (RR) = 2.0, 95% confidence interval (CI) 1.2-3.4) was observed among current OC users compared to never users. Risk was further increased among current users with 10 or more years of use (RR = 3.4, 95% CI 1.7-7.0). Risk did not appear elevated among past OC users, even among those with longer durations of use, and risk did not decline linearly with time since last use. In conclusion, risk of premenopausal melanoma may be increased among women who are current OC users, particularly among those with longer durations of use. Further research is needed to determine whether low-dose oestrogen pills in particular are associated with an increase in risk and to describe possible interactions between OC use and sun exposure or other risk factors for melanoma.

Evaluation of apoptotic cells induced by ultraviolet light B radiation in epidermal sheets stained by the TUNEL technique. (6/289)Two major components of epidermal cells, keratinocytes and Langerhans cells, are injured by ultraviolet light B radiation, resulting in sunburn cell (apoptotic cell) formation, impaired function, and a reduced number of Langerhans cells. Quantitative analysis of Langerhans cell damage is usually performed using epidermal sheets, whereas that of keratinocytes has been performed by counting the number of sunburn cells in vertical tissue sections. In this study we assessed the influences of ultraviolet light B radiation on epidermal cells by apoptotic cell formation, using murine epidermal sheets stained by terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase-mediated dUTP nick end labeling technique. Ten to 75 mJ per cm2 of ultraviolet light B radiation induced apoptotic cells in abdominal skin of C3H mice. The cells were induced in 6 h after 50 mJ per cm2 of ultraviolet light B irradiation with the peak in number in 24 h, 18.8 +/- 5.0 per mm2 and 97.7 +/- 7.4 per mm2, respectively. One week later, the apoptotic cells were not visualized. As C3H/He, BALB/C, and C57BL/6 mice showed almost the same frequency of apoptosis in epidermal sheets from 50 mJ per cm2 ultraviolet light B-irradiated skin, the induction of the cells by ultraviolet light B radiation did not depend on the genetic trait of the mouse. Xeroderma pigmentosum type A gene-deficient mice, however, showed a greater induction of apoptotic cells (216.9 +/- 25.2 per mm2) by ultraviolet light B radiation than xeroderma pigmentosum type A wild-type mice (89.5 +/- 13.6 per mm2) and conventional mice. Pretreatment with a SPF 60 sunscreen agent was quite effective in reducing the induction of apoptotic cells. Using confocal laser scanning microscopy and double staining, 1.5 +/- 2.7% of apoptotic cells were Ia-positive cells in 24 h after 50 mJ per cm2 of ultraviolet light B radiation. Apoptotic Ia-positive cells were not observed 48 h after the radiation. On the other hand, no apoptotic dendritic epidermal T cells were observed in up to 75 mJ per cm2 of ultraviolet light B radiated skin. Thus, nearly all apoptotic cells were keratinocytes, and Langerhans cells and dendritic epidermal T cells appeared resistant to ultraviolet light B-induced apoptosis. Compared with the assessment in vertical tissue sections, the terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase-mediated dUTP nick end labeling technique with epidermal sheets appeared to be a more physiologically relevant method for quantitative evaluation of apoptotic epidermal cells induced by ultraviolet light B radiation.

Temporal events in skin injury and the early adaptive responses in ultraviolet-irradiated mouse skin. (7/289)We examined the effects of ultraviolet (UV) radiation on the time course for induction of sunburn (apoptotic) cells and expression of proteins known to be associated with growth arrest and apoptosis in SKH-hr1 mouse skin. Mice were irradiated with a single dose (2.5 kJ/m(2)) of UV from Kodacel-filtered (290-400 nm) FS40 sunlamps and the skin tissues were analyzed at various times after irradiation for the presence of apoptotic cells and expression of p53, p21(Waf-1/Cip1), bcl-2, bax, and proliferating cell nuclear antigen. The results indicated that p53 expression was induced early in the epidermis, reaching maximum levels 12 hours after irradiaton, and p21(Waf-1/Cip1) expression in the epidermis peaked at 24 hours after irradiation. In contrast, UV radiation induced high levels of bax at 24 to 72 hours after irradiation with a concomitant decrease in bcl-2 expression. Coinciding with these changes, apoptotic cells began to appear 6 hours after irradiation and reached a maximum at 24 hours after irradiation. Interestingly, proliferating cell nuclear antigen expression, which was initially confined to the basal layer, became dispersed throughout the basal and suprabasal layers of the skin at 48 hours and paralleled marked hyperplasia. These results suggest that UV irradiation of mouse skin induces apoptosis mediated by the p53/p21/bax/bcl-2 pathway and that the dead cells are replaced by hyperproliferative cells, leading to epidermal hyperplasia. This implies that UV-induced apoptosis and hyperplasia are closely linked and tightly regulated and that dysregulation of these two events may lead to skin cancer development. (+info)
Sensitivity to sunburn is associated with susceptibility to ultraviolet radiation-induced suppression of cutaneous cell-mediated immunity. (8/289)Skin cancer incidence is highest in white-skinned people. Within this group, skin types I/II (sun sensitive/tan poorly) are at greater risk than skin types III/IV (sun tolerant/tan well). Studies in mice demonstrate that ultraviolet radiation (UVR)-induced suppression of cell-mediated immune function plays an important role in the development of skin cancer and induces a susceptibility to infectious disease. A similar role is suspected in humans, but we lack quantitative human data to make risk assessments of ambient solar exposure on human health. This study demonstrates that ambient levels of solar UVR, typically experienced within 1 h of exposure to noonday summer sunlight, can suppress contact hypersensitivity (CHS) responses in healthy white-skinned humans in vivo (n = 93). There was a linear relationship between increase in erythema and suppression of CHS (P < 0.001), and a moderate sunburn (two minimal erythema doses [2 MED]) was sufficient to suppress CHS in all volunteers by 93%. However, a single suberythemal exposure of either 0.25 or 0.5 MED suppressed CHS responses by 50 and 80%, respectively, in skin types I/II, whereas 1 MED only suppressed CHS by 40% in skin types III/IV. The two- to threefold greater sensitivity of skin types I/II for a given level of sunburn may play a role in their greater sensitivity to skin cancer. (+info)

The objective of this cross-sectional questionnaire study was to assess associations of a self-report index of sun protection habit strength with sunscreen use in sporting environments and outdoor physical activity. Participants (n = 234) in field hockey, soccer, tennis and surf sports in Queensland, Australia, completed a self-administered survey on sun protection during organized sport, and during general outdoor physical activity during 2005/2006. The sun protection habit strength index was dichotomized into two categories. Multinomial logistic regression analyses assessed the associations of low versus high sun protection habit strength with three categories of sunscreen use (no or rare use; inadequate use; and adequate use). Compared to participants with low sun protection habit strength, those with high sun protection habit strength had significantly greater odds of any sunscreen use during organized sport and during general outdoor physical activity. This association was strongest for adequate
Pokemon Go Blamed For Rise In Severe Sunburn Injuries
Popular gaming app Pokemon Go is being blamed for a rise in reported sunburn injuries at local Emergency Rooms across the country. Doctors dont believe the severe sunburn is caused by the app itself but most likely because many of the users have not been exposed to sunlight in years. Dr. Peter Criss, Chief Dermatologist at the Hellmans Clinic explains, Many of these poor gamers have developed a non genetic form of albinism. Years and years of being sheltered from sunlight in their parents basements and closed bedrooms with only the glare of their monitor providing artificial light has stunted their bodies ability to produce melanin, this in turn has caused a shock to their system when they enter the sunlight for periods of as little as twenty minutes.. Besides the rise in severe sunburns, doctors are seeing a rise in reports of sprained ankles from prolonged use of atrophied legs, and panic attacks from gamers experiencing sweat for the first time.. ...

Sun-protective behaviors in populations at high risk for skin cancer | PRBM
Sun-protective behaviors in populations at high risk for skin cancer Diana Y Diao,1 Tim K Lee1,21Department of Dermatology and Skin Science, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada; 2Cancer Control Research Program, BC Cancer Agency, Vancouver, British Columbia, CanadaAbstract: Over 3 million new cases of skin cancer are diagnosed in the US annually. Melanoma, a subtype of skin cancer that can be fatal if the disease is not detected and treated at an early stage, is the most common cancer for those aged 25-29 years and the second most common cancer in adolescents and young adults aged 15-29 years. The primary carcinogen for the genesis of skin cancers is ultraviolet light from solar radiation and tanning beds. In spite of massive health campaigns to raise public awareness on ultraviolet radiation, sun-protective practices still fall behind. A plausible explanation is the lack of behavioral change in the populations at risk; in this review article, we examine sun-protective
Sunburn and sun protection - Wikitravel
Sunburn is a symptom of a damaged skin produced by overexposure to the suns harmful UV-rays, and is a danger of traveling in sunny climates. Getting badly sunburnt on the first day of sun and sand holiday can ruin the rest of your trip. In addition, sunburns and too much sun over the years can lead to skin cancer. The basal and squamous cell types arent so bad as far as cancer goes, but its removal will leave unsightly scars. However, melanoma is just as lethal as the other deadly cancers. In the past few decades, its become known that sunburns substantially increase the risk of melanoma.
Summer Sunburn Warning - Expert Skin Advice from Renee Rouleau
Summer is here and this means visits to the beach, lake and pool with the sun out in full force. As most people have experienced, it sure doesnt take much to get a sunburn. Sunscreens wear off, wash off, sweat off and reapplying at least every two hours is a must to prevent sunburns.. People generally know to apply sunscreen when they first go out in the sun, but what I have seen happen time and time again (particularly with men) is that they often dont apply sunscreen to their skin until they see a burn or redness. Once the skin is sunburned, applying more sunscreen over a burn wont provide additional protection so at this point, getting completely out of the sun is the best thing you can do. Or at the very least, cover up with a t-shirt and get in the shade.. If you see redness or a sunburn, follow these instructions:. -Get out of the sun immediately and get indoors. -If you cant go inside, seek shade under an awning, tree or umbrella. -Put on a t-shirt to filter out additional UV rays ...

MedicalResearch.com | Australias SunSmart Program Program Linked to Decrease in Melanomas
Australia. MedicalResearch.com: What is the background for this study? Response: Skin cancer prevention programs, such as the SunSmart program in Victoria, have been implemented in Australia over 30 years with the aim of reducing the populations exposure to ultraviolet radiation (UV), the main cause of skin cancer. A recent reduction in melanoma rates among younger Australians has led to this paper which examines the extent of behaviour change in Melbourne, Australia, and the potential contribution of prevention programs to the decline in melanoma rates.. Previous population-based studies assessing the impact of these programs have focused on measuring the change in the prevalence of individual sun protection behaviours, and thus have largely overlooked the use of sun avoidance and composite sun protection behaviours. The focus on tracking individual behaviours may have underestimated the behaviour change associated with these programs.. We analysed data from a series of cross-sectional surveys ...

Tendency to Sunburn Easily | Digital Naturopath
Sunburns hurt, and the damage they inflict on your skin is long lasting and dangerous. The redness of a sunburn is caused by clogged and swollen capillaries that supply blood to the skin. Severe burns, caused by the ultraviolet rays in sunlight, damage blood vessels and destroy elastic fibers in the skin, causing it to sag and wrinkle. Excessive sun exposure can also lead to skin cancer, the most common of all cancers.. Prevention is best. Perform outdoor activities before 10:00 A.M. or after 2:00 P.M., when the ultraviolet rays are less intense. Remember to wear a sunscreen with an SPF (sun protection factor) of 15 or higher..
