    Comparison of clinical effects of psoriasis treatment regimens among calcipotriol alone, narrowband ultraviolet B phototherapy alone, combination of calcipotriol and narrowband ultraviolet B phototherapy once a week, and combination of calcipotriol and narrowband ultraviolet B phototherapy more than twice a week.
    J Dermatol 2013 Jun 18;40(6):424-7. Epub 2013 Feb 18.
    Department of Dermatology, Asahikawa Medical College, Asahikawa Medical University, Asahikawa, Japan.
    We compared the clinical efficacy of various psoriasis treatments among: (i) topical application of calcipotriol ointment twice daily (group I); (ii) topical application of calcipotriol ointment twice daily and narrowband ultraviolet B NB-UVB phototherapy once a week (group II); (iii) topical application of heparinoid ointment twice daily and NB-UVB phototherapy more than twice a week (group III); and (iv) topical application of calcipotriol ointment twice daily and NB-UVB phototherapy more than twice a week (group IV). Ten patients were randomly selected for each group and treated by the indicated regimens for 12 weeks. All treatments were effective and significantly improved Psoriasis Area and Severity Index (PASI) scores, self-administered PASI scores and visual analog scale scores of pruritus. Read More
    Why are there significant differences in published narrowband ultraviolet B dosimetry recommendations? The need for national standardization of phototherapy treatment.
    J Am Acad Dermatol 2011 Aug;65(2):411-4
    Narrowband ultraviolet B phototherapy is an important treatment option for psoriasis and other skin diseases. When narrowband ultraviolet B phototherapy is initiated, one method involves determining the minimal erythema dose for each patient with the starting dose at 50% to 70% of the minimal erythema dose. An alternative method involves using the recommended narrowband ultraviolet B exposure dose based on a patient's Fitzpatrick skin type. Read More
    Case of thymoma-associated cutaneous graft-versus-host disease-like disease successfully improved by narrowband ultraviolet B phototherapy.

    Department of Dermatology, Ehime University Graduate School of Medicine, Ehime, Japan.
    Thymoma-associated graft-versus-host disease (GVHD)-like disease is a rare paraneoplastic disease seen in patients with thymoma. Here, we describe the first case of thymoma-associated GVHD-like disease localized to the skin that was successfully improved by a combination of systemic corticosteroids and whole-body narrowband ultraviolet (UV)-B phototherapy. The patient had developed toxic epidermal necrolysis-like erosive skin lesions over the whole body. Read More
