Narrowband UVB phototherapy psoriasis treatment
Cutis. 2001 Nov;68(5):345-7.
What is the safest form of ultra violet (UV) phototherapy?
An advance in UVB-based phototherapy has been the introduction of fluorescent light bulbs (Philips TL-01) that deliver monochromatic light at 311-nm UVB, a narrowband wavelength that seems to maximize clearing of plaques relative to its erythrogenic potential. Narrowband UVB phototherapy has considerable advantages over traditional treatment options such as broadband UVB and psoralen plus UVA (PUVA). It is clearly more effective than broadband UVB, safer than PUVA, and well tolerated by patients when taken at suberythemogenic doses. Narrowband UVB represents an important new therapy for psoriasis.
