  • In this paper, we investigate how latitude impacts not only on the amount of UV available for vitamin D synthesis, but also the distribution of UV over the human form.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Your skin shows the most direct effects of UV exposure over the course of a lifetime.[wikihow.com]
Red Eye
  • Its symptoms include red eyes, a foreign body sensation or gritty feeling in the eyes, extreme sensitivity to light and excessive tearing. Fortunately, these symptoms are usually temporary and rarely cause permanent damage to the eyes.[aoa.org]
Facial Burn
  • It is not uncommon for lab workers to receive facial burns in the areas not covered by the goggles or glasses.[forensicmag.com]
  • Dark CPDs arise when UV-induced reactive oxygen and nitrogen species combine to excite an electron in fragments of the pigment melanin.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • However, there could be ways to block the delayed effects with antioxidants that absorb the excited electrons before they can damage DNA.[newscientist.com]
  • 'We're excited to be the first beauty company entering the stretchable electronics field and to explore the many potential applications for this technology within our industry and beyond.'[dailymail.co.uk]
  • The transfection experiment showed that the UV-induced decrease in expression was partially inhibited by transfection of kinase-dead Atr (ataxia telangiectasia mutated and Rad3 related), which is a sensor of UV-induced damage.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • It has been shown that exposure is not negligible, especially if safety procedures are neglected and personal protective equipments, described in this study, are not used.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]


  • To assess whether EMA and PMA pretreatment is a suitable approach to inhibit DNA amplification from noninfectious viruses upon heat treatment, UV exposure or chlorine treatment, viruses were measured by qPCR, EMA-qPCR, PMA-qPCR and cell culture titration[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]


  • The prognosis for patients diagnosed in summer and fall is better than those diagnosed in winter, and total sun exposure prior to diagnosis is a predictor of survival.[iflscience.com]


  • Abstract Exposure to solar ultraviolet radiation (UV) is the main etiological factor for skin cancer, including melanoma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • In the 1992 edition of the American Journal of Epidemiology, it was found that fluorescent lights emit " 10-30 times " more UVB radiation than the sun does. UVB radiation has been found to be carcinogenic (cancer causing).[naturalux.com]

  • Our ultimate aim was to provide new information on antioxidant defenses in the lens and their regulation, thereby broadening existing knowledge of the role of Prdx6 in lens physiology and pathophysiology.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Rarely, retinal absorption of visible to near-infrared (400-1400 nm) radiation from welding arcs can lead to permanent, sight-threatening injury. [2] Pathophysiology The cornea transmits most of the visible light spectrum, including the UV spectrum, with[emedicine.medscape.com]


  • Therefore, maintaining genomic stability of melanocytes is crucial for prevention of melanoma, as well as keratinocyte-derived basal and squamous cell carcinoma. A critical independent factor for preventing melanoma is DNA repair capacity.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
