The influence of low and moderate doses of ultraviolet irradiation produced by the UFA-1 device possessing the wavelength of 350 to 400 nm on the parameters of skin inflammation in patients suffering atopic dermatitis

Cite item


The performed investigation has shown that there is an increase of the content of CD4+ lymphocytes and an increased expression of γ-interferon in the skin of patients with atopic dermatitis comparing to healthy volunteers. Therapy with the use of UFA-1 produced more marked levels of γ-interferon positive cells in the skin (р = 0.004) in patients with clinical recovery compared to subjects with an achieved improvement, as well as a substantial reduction of the Т-helpers level within the effected skin areas (р = 0.009).
