N2 - A course of treatment with narrow-band ultraviolet B (NB-UVB) improves psoriasis and increases serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D). In this study 12 patients with psoriasis who were supplemented with oral cholecalciferol, 20 µg daily, were given a course of NB-UVB and their response measured. At baseline, serum 25(OH)D was 74.14 ± 22.9 nmol/l. At the 9th exposure to NB-UVB 25(OH)D had increased by 13.2 nmol/l (95% confidence interval (95% CI) 7.2-18.4) and at the 18th exposure by 49.4 nmol/l (95% CI 35.9-64.6) above baseline. Psoriasis Area Severity Index score improved from 8.7 ± 3.5 to 4.5 ± 2.0 (p , 0.001). At baseline, psoriasis ...
Progressive macular hypomelanosis (PMH) is an acquired disorder of skin pigmentation, which is mostly under-diagnosed. It is characterized by nummular hypopigmented lesions appearing on the trunk in young persons. Several treatment options are available, although topical clindamycin and benzoyl peroxide have been used traditionally. However, good results have recently been achieved using narrow-band ultraviolet B (NBUVB) phototherapy. We present the case of a 13-year-old girl with hypopigmented lesions on the trunk and limbs that had progressed over 1 year and that were diagnosed as PMH. The patient was initially treated with topical clindamycin and benzoyl peroxide. However, little improvement was seen and treatment was then started with NBUVB phototherapy. After 25 sessions, with a total cumulative dose of 18 J/cm2, the patient showed almost total repigmentation of the lesions. The treatment of PMH is often difficult, and very little is currently known about the treatment response in this ...
Long-term treatments for chronic diseases such as vitiligo need to be evaluated for their clinical efficacy. Assessment of the quality of life (QOL), however, may provide the most relevant information on the actual benefit for these patients. In this study we evaluated QOL after long-term narrowband ultraviolet (UV) B for the treatment of vitiligo. All patients, with long-term stable vitiligo vulgaris, who were treated at our clinic during the last 4 years received specifically for this study a designed QOL questionnaire, which included questions about general well-being, camouflage and psychosocial aspects; 71.4% of the patients responded. Most patients indicated an improvement on a psychological level, but an increase in camouflaging. The present study shows that, after long-term narrowband UVB phototherapy, skin appearance does not play a major role in the life of vitiligo patients, while well being only improved in a minority of patients ...
Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology - Vol. 54 - N° 6 - p. 1013-1018 - Methotrexate plus narrowband UVB phototherapy versus narrowband UVB phototherapy alone in the treatment of plaque-type psoriasis: A randomized, placebo-controlled study - EM|consulte
Exposure to solar ultraviolet B radiation during the summer months is the main source of vitamin D (VD) for people living in northern latitudes. The aim of this study was to determine whether artificial narrowband ultraviolet B (NB-UVB) whole-body exposures could maintain VD levels in winter. The intervention group received 2 standard erythema doses (SEDs) of NB-UVB exposures every second week from October 2013 to April 2014. In October 2013 serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D concentrations were 78.3 nmol/l in the intervention group (n = 16) and 76.8 nmol/l in the control group (n = 18). By April 2014 the concentrations had increased by 11.7 nmol/l (p = 0.029) in the intervention group and decreased by 11.1 nmol/l (p = 0.022) in the control group. The baseline VD concentration showed a negative correlation (p = 0.012) with body mass index (BMI). In conclusion, a suberythemal NB-UVB dose of 2 SED every second week maintains and even increases serum VD concentrations during the winter. A high BMI seems to ...
Very surprised that the phototherapy treatment had a higher adherence rate. Possibly the side effects of the oral medication were so bad that the time spent on the PTT was worth it? I am not familiar with the PTT but it sounds very interesting, and a more adherent treatment than oral medication for psoriasis. Another question: what is the cost for this treatment? It is a one time cost or rental for the equipment, then recurring costs? Cheaper than oral medications ...

BACKGROUND:Psoriasis is an autoimmune, inflammatory, and chronic disease. Recent studies have evaluated serum endocan and nesfatin-1 levels in patients with inflammatory disorders. The neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) is an inflammatory marker currently used in many diseases. The aim of the present study was to evaluate NLR, serum endocan, and nesfatin-1 levels in psoriasis vulgaris before and after narrow-band ultraviolet B (NB-UVB) phototherapy treatment and compared to healthy controls. MATERIAL AND METHODS:This study was conducted on a total of 88 cases, 39 of which had psoriasis vulgaris and 49 were healthy volunteers. Thirty-nine psoriasis vulgaris patients underwent NB-UVB phototherapy treatment for 3 months. NLR, serum endocan, and nesfatin-1 levels were measured in all psoriasis patients before and after NB-UVB phototherapy and in the control group. RESULTS:Compared with the control group, neutrophil count and NLR were significantly higher (p|0.001) in psoriasis patients before NB-UVB
Summary: The study presents the results of combined usage of narrowband UVB phototherapy with low - dose methotrexate in treatment of psoriasis. 48 patients with moderately severe and severe psoriasis in the phase of progression accompanied by psoriatic arthritis have been observed. 30 patients were treated with UVB therapy with a 311 nm narrowband in combination with low doses of methotrexate (7.5 mg per week).

The treatment course consists of three tours. Treatment has been carried out on a background of traditional therapy.The comparison group received conventional therapy in combination with narrowband UVB phototherapy and nonsteroidal ...
BACKGROUND: Psoriasis is associated with a systemic inflammation and an increased frequency of the metabolic syndrome, both of which are believed to link psoriasis to an increased risk of cardiovascular disease.. OBJECTIVE: The study aimed to investigate the systemic expression of markers of cardiovascular risk and determine their response to ultraviolet B therapy and treatment with the tumor necrosis factor-alfa inhibitor, etanercept.. METHODS: Six markers of cardiovascular risk were measured in 28 patients with psoriasis and 28 control subjects.. RESULTS: Five of the 6 investigated markers were elevated in patients with psoriasis. Four of these correlated to the body mass index and waist-hip ratio, suggesting a link to the metabolic syndrome. Total plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 remained elevated independently of these factors. The levels of the investigated risk markers decreased considerably after tumor necrosis factor-alfa inhibitor treatment but remained unaffected by ultraviolet ...
Ultraviolet radiation (UVR) is known to be one of the most important environmental hazards acting on the skin. It was revealed that chronic exposure to UVR accelerates skin aging, induces immunosuppression and may lead to the development of skin cancers. On the other hand, UVR has been shown to be effective in the treatment of numerous skin diseases and thus, various phototherapy modalities have been developed to date. Narrow-band ultraviolet B (NB-UVB) emitting a light with a peak around 311 nm has been demonstrated to be effective in the treatment of various skin disorders; currently it is one of the most commonly used phototherapy devices. Despite NB-UVB has been developed more than 30 years ago, the exact mechanism of its therapeutic action remains poorly understood. To date, most of NB-UVB effects were attributed to its influence on immune cells; however, nearly 90% of NB-UVB irradiation is absorbed by epidermis and keratinocytes seem to be important players in mediating NB-UVB biological activity.

Background: Alefacept is an effective intermittent treatment for psoriasis that can provide long-lasting remissions. Combination therapy with narrow-band ultraviolet B (nbUVB) phototherapy may enhance treatment outcomes and accelerate the onset of clinical response. Objective: To assess the efficacy of alefacept in combination with nbUVB phototherapy compared to alefacept alone in subjects with moderate to severe psoriasis. Methods: Ninety-eight adults with moderate to severe psoriasis were randomized to treatment with alefacept 15 mg intramuscularly (IM) once weekly for 12 weeks alone or in combination with three times weekly nbUVB treatments in this prospective, open-label, assessor-blinded, randomized, multicenter, parallel-group, 36-week study. Results: A statistically significantly greater proportion of subjects in the alefacept plus nbUVB arm achieved the primary endpoint of PASI 75 at week 16 compared to subjects in the alefacept alone arm (44.9% vs 22.5%, P=0.032).

Trial Name: Home Interventions and Light Therapy for the Treatment of Vitiligo (HI-Light). Chief Investigator: Jonathan Batchelor, Derby Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and the University of Nottingham. Trial Description: Vitiligo causes loss of pigment on the skin and white patches appear in the affected areas. This condition affects areas. This condition affects around 1% of the population worldwide, and patients with vitiligo can experience problems such as shame, depression, and low self-esteem due to the appearance of their skin. There is no cure for vitiligo, as the cause of the condition is not understood. Treatment options for small areas of vitiligo are limited; small patches are sometimes treated with topical corticosteriod ointments. Narrowband Ultraviolet B light therapy (NB-UVB) may also be offered as a treatment, but it involves frequent visits to hospital and is mainly used for widespread vitiligo. Hand-held NB-UVB light units are available to use in the home on small patches of ...

Philips, A.G., manufacturer of the ultraviolet lamps used in Daavlins narrow band UVB phototherapy cabinets, has amassed an exhaustive library of studies from around the world documenting the therapeutic effectiveness and safety benefits of narrow band UVB treatment. This information is available upon request from the Daavlin Company. PUVA PUVA combines a Psoralen drug (the product name is Oxsoralen) with exposure to ultraviolet light A (UVA). Psoralen makes the body very sensitive to UVA rays and comes in oral or topical form. It may be used on a short- term basis to bring a severe or disabling case of psoriasis under control. The main long-term side effect of PUVA is the increased risk of skin cancer. UVA1 UVA1 (340-400nm) is the range of long wavelength ultraviolet light immediately next to visible light in the electromagnetic spectrum. Consequentally, UVA1 photons have the deepest penetration into the body, but the lowest energy per photon of any type of ultraviolet light. UVA1 has many ...
In clinics or hospitals there are larger and stronger apparatus. However, remember that sometimes the dose (amount of light) is not enough because some doctors are afraid of accidental iatrogenic burning. Doctors have various policies. Some prefer scientific approach by measuring the intensity of the apparatus while others prefer riskless and empirical approach starting from very low dose and then increasing gradually. Under the latter doctors, patients might misunderstand that phototherapy is not useful ...

I would not recommend steroids on somebody so young. We have some information on our web page concerning the long term use of steroids and they would strain a young persons liver and kidneys for various reasons.

I would get out the phone book to find a specialist elsehwhere, although I do not know if you have many options in your area. There is only limited treatment options for Vitiligo. Your local doctor should probably be able to prescribe Protopic, but I am unsure if that is safe for children - you will need to ask your doctor or read the packaging properly.

Many methods have been employed to prevent infections from opportunistic pathogens in immunocompromised individuals. Among these are the use of ultraviolet light (UV). In this study, UVC light, was found to have a deleterious effect on specific skin flora. Organisms tested included Acinetobacter baumanii, Candida albicans, Candida kefyr, Corynebacterium renale, Enterococcus faecalis, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus epidermidis, and Streptococcus pyogenes. Nutrient agar was used to cultivate most organisms. Blood agar was used for the cultivation of Streptococcus pyogenes and Enterococcus faecalis. Bacterial suspensions were made and utilized to plate each organism onto a set of 7 nutrient agar or blood agar plates. A portion of each of 6 of the plates was then exposed to UVC light for 15, 30, 45, 60, 75, and 90 seconds respectively. For each organism, increased exposure to UVC light resulted in a decrease of the number of colony forming units observed in the portion of the

1) WHAT IS NARROW BAND UVB LIGHT PHOTOTHERAPY?. UVB Phototherapy utilizes specialized light bulbs to treat various inflammatory skin conditions like psoriasis or eczema. Historically, exposure to natural sunlight was often associated with improvement of certain skin disorders. UV refers to the ultraviolet light spectrum. Narrow band refers to a few very specific wavelengths of light in the ultraviolet spectrum. These wavelengths were studied and found to be just as beneficial to your skin as the entire UV spectrum.. 2) HOW DOES LIGHT THERAPY WORK? Ultraviolet rays decrease skin inflammation when dosed properly.. 3) WHAT SKIN CONDITIONS CAN LIGHT THERAPY TREAT? Psoriasis, eczema, vitiligo, generalized itch, cutaneous lymphoma, lichen planus, and other rare skin conditions all can benefit from narrow band UVB light therapy.. 4 ) WHAT HAPPENS DURING A LIGHT THERAPY APPOINTMENT? A person enters a stand-up light booth- much like a typical tanning bed- lined with 48 specialized UVB light bulbs. During ...

Chronic graft-vs-host disease (GVHD) is a frequent complication in patients who receive allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplants (HCTs), and the skin is the most common site of involvement. Chronic cutaneous GVHD can present with sclerotic or nonsclerotic changes and often requires treatment with systemic immunosuppressants, extracorporeal photopheresis, or phototherapy. Immunosuppressants carry the potential of causing important side effects, so additional modes of therapy with better security profiles are clearly needed. We report a case of an eleven year old girl, who received allogeneic HCTs to treat acute lymphocytic leukemia. She developed sclerotic chronic GVHD. The patient underwent treatment with narrowband ...

The initial exposure dose is small, and hence the treatment is brief, but as your tolerance to the light increases the exposures are progressively increased. Treatments are given two or three times each week in order to clear the skin. Weekly or twice weekly treatment is usually required to maintain a clear state.. In the office, prior to each treatment, you must apply a moisturizing cream (an emollient) to the affected skin. Moisturizing cream is provided and the nursing staff can assist you with application if necessary. Emollients facilitate the transmission of light in all of the disease states we treat, thus will increase the effect of the light treatment and speed the time to improvement. Emollients also decrease the dryness and itching that may occur after phototherapy.. To maximize efficacy of treatment, you must apply emollient in the office to your affected skin before each treatment.. Prior to your first treatment, your response to ultraviolet light may be tested to determine a safe ...
This is a randomized, blinded, and controlled trial to assess the efficacy and safety of UVA1 phototherapy in the treatment of active morphea in adults and children. Forty patients will be randomized to receive either medium dose (70 J/cm2) phototherapy (active UVA1 phototherapy) with an ultraviolet translucent acrylic screen or sham UVA1 (0 J/cm2) phototherapy with an ultraviolet opaque acrylic screen 3 times per week for 10 weeks. The phototherapists, patients, and principal investigator will be blinded to whether the patients receive active or sham UVA1 phototherapy. Patients will only be allowed to apply emollients during the study.. Patients completing the randomized placebo controlled trial (RPCT) will be followed during an open observation period for 3 months. During the open phase, all outcome measures from the RPCT (LoSSI, PGA-A) will be assessed every 5 weeks as well as adverse events. Patients who received sham UVA1 phototherapy will be invited to receive active UVA1 phototherapy ...
Abstract: Using Chandra ACIS-S, we have obtained imaging Xray spectrophotometry of the Pluto system in support of the New Horizons flyby on 14 July 2015. 174 ksec of observations were obtained on 4 visits in Feb 2014 to Aug 2015. We measured a net signal of 6.8 counts and a noise level of 1.2 counts in a comoving 11 x 11 pixel box (100 x 100 R_Pluto) in the 0.31 to 0.60 keV passband for a detection at , 99.95 C.L. The Pluto photons do not match the background spectrum, are coincident with a 90% flux aperture comoving with Pluto, and are not sky source confused. The mean 0.31 to 0.60 keV Xray power from Pluto is 200 MW, in the midrange of Xray power levels seen for known solar system emission sources: auroral precipitation, solar Xray scattering, and charge exchange (CXE) between solar wind (SW) ions & atmospheric neutrals. We eliminate auroral effects as a source, as Pluto has no known magnetic field & the New Horizons Alice UV spectrometer detected no airglow from Pluto during the flyby. ...
My first impression of the Illumask Anti Aging Phototherapy was there was less light bulbs in the mask than I expected. I used the Illumask Anti Aging Phototherapy at night, right before bedtime. I found the treatment to be a little strange, as you cant really do anything but lay in bed with your eyes closed, for 15 minutes. Surprisingly, while listening to the tv, 15 minutes went by pretty quickly.. At about 10 days of consecutive use of the Illumask Anti Aging Phototherapy , I am quite happy with the results. I dont know if it is due to my other skincare routine, but my skin looks better. I feel that my skin is smoother, glows, and is more refined.. The downside of the Illumask Anti Aging Phototherapy is that it only lasts 30 treatments and will need to be replaced. I do think that the Illumask Anti Aging Phototherapy is a great beauty product, and I plan on buying it again.. *If you want a rechargeable phototherapy device, check out my review of the ANSR beam.. ...

Phototherapy (light therapy or UV therapy) is a very effective and safe treatment for inflammatory skin disorders.. It is used for the treatment of psoriasis, eczema and vitiligo most commonly; but does have several other indications.. It is usually recommended when topical therapies (creams, ointments, gels) are not leading to significant improvement or for widespread cutaneous disease where topical therapies can be difficult to apply regularly. Your dermatologist will advise if this treatment is appropriate for you.. Phototherapy often leads to significant improvement within several weeks and can lead to lasting remissions from disease. Usually a treatment course is 3x/week for 6-12 weeks with each treatment lasting seconds-minutes only.. At Perth Dermatology Clinic we offer phototherapy for the whole body and/or hands and feet.. The full cost of phototherapy is covered by Medicare (bulk billed).. Our phototherapy machines are imported from Germany and of the latest technology. Our machines ...

If an infant spends an average of one less day under phototherapy lights do not underestimate the added benefit with respect to avoiding needle pokes. Typically such infants receive one poke a day to check how the decline is going. Shortening the course of phototherapy may translate into one or two less pokes or more and that is definitely a good thing!. Lastly I will leave you with a tip from my own practice which I have found very useful to eliminate at least one poke. When phototherapy is effective and the bilirubin is coming down (and is close to the threshold for stopping but not quite there yet) it is common for people on rounds to order another bilirubin for the morning and continue phototherapy until that result. The result comes back the following morning and the practitioner orders a follow-up bilirubin for the following day to check for the rebound.. An alternative strategy is to keep the infant on phototherapy overnight and rather than checking on the bilirubin in the morning ...

In order to prevent the aggregation of ICG and enhance its stability, a novel nanoplatform (TiO2:Yb,Ho,F-β[email protected]/HA) was designed for NIR-induced phototherapy along with multi-mode imaging(UCL/MRI/Flu). In this nanosysytem: TiO2:Yb,Ho,F was used as upconversion materials and applied in vivo for the first time; β-CD acted as a protective umbrella to load separated ICG and avoid the low phototherapy efficiency because of its aggregation; HA was the capping agent of β-CD to prevent ICG unexpected leaking and a target to recognize CD44 receptor. The nanosystem exhibited excellent size (~200 nm) and photo- and thermal-stability, preferable reactive oxygen yield and temperature response (50.4 °C) under 808 nm laser. It could efficiently target and suppress tumor growth. The imaging ability (UCL/MRI) of TiO2:Yb,Ho,F could facilitate diagnosis of the tumor, especially for deep tissues. Altogether, our work successfully improved the phototherapy efficacy through incorporating the ICG into the cavity of β
In both methods of phototherapy, the aim is to expose your babys skin to as much light as possible.. Conventional phototherapy is the treatment tried first in most cases, although fibreoptic phototherapy may be used first if your baby was born prematurely. These types of phototherapy will usually be stopped for 30 minutes every three to four hours so you can feed your baby, change their nappy, and give them a hug.. If your babys jaundice doesnt improve after conventional or fibreoptic phototherapy, continuous multiple phototherapy may be offered. This involves using more than one light and often a fibreoptic blanket at the same time. Treatment wont be stopped during continuous multiple phototherapy. Instead, milk that has been squeezed out of your breasts in advance may be given through a tube into your babys stomach, or fluids may be given into one of their veins (intravenously).. During phototherapy, you babys temperature will be monitored to ensure theyre not getting too hot and ...

In August of 2017, researchers from the South African Astronomical Observatory (SAAO) and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) observed a relatively rare event, a stellar occultation by the dwarf planet Pluto. The stellar occultation technique requires accurate measurements of the positions of a distant star and a foreground body, in order to predict exactly when and where on Earth a shadow will fall. In this case, Pluto was predicted to occult a star of approximately 15th visible magnitude, with the moderately-sized shadow path (less than 1/3 the diameter of Earth) falling over the northern Pacific Ocean. The event was observed remotely from Cape Town, using NASAs 3-m IRTF (Infrared Telescope Facility [https://irtfweb.ifa.hawaii.edu/]) with the high-speed, accurately-timed, visible-wavelength instrument MORIS (MIT Optical Rapid Imaging System). Figure 3 contains Images taken before and after the occultation, which show Pluto and its largest satellite, Charon, as they approach the ...
