Skin cancers affect approximately 600,000 Caucasian Americans every year. Jefferson  Health System

Treatment remains unsatisfactory: either safe and relatively ineffective, or alternatively, potent but toxic or cosmetically unacceptable. We think therapeutic opportunities are as likely to arise from spin-offs of research into other inflammatory disease processes, or understanding how recognised therapies achieve their effects, as by a ‘head-on’ direct approach. We think it important to study these diseases at a range of levels: literally from molecules to the clinic.

The clinic also offers treatment of UV light responsive skin disorders including vitiligo, pityriasis lichenoides chronica, recalcitrant atopic dermatitis and cutaneous lymphoma (mycosis fungoides). UV light therapy (phototherapy) is an effective treatment modality in many recalcitrant skin disorders. Patients with complicated psoriasis, recalcitrant atopic dermatitis and skin disorders, and cutaneous lymphoma requiring phototherapy are treated at these clinics. Patients undergoing phototherapy will be given patient education to minimize phototherapy associated risks. Phototherapy service in the NSC enables patients to receive treatment as an out-patient thereby avoiding costly hospitalization.

The divisions of the editorial board reflect areas of specific interest: aging, carcinogenesis, immunology, instrumentation and optics, lasers,   photodynamic therapy, photosensitivity, pigmentation and therapy. Photodermatology, Photoimmunology & Photomedicine includes original articles, reviews, communications and editorials. Original articles may include the investigation of experimental or pathological processes in humans or animals in vivo or the investigation of radiation effects in cells or tissues in vitro. Methodology need have no limitation; rather, it should be appropriate to the  question addressed. Thus, all contemporary physiologic, microscopic, and biochemical methodologies are welcomed. Review articles, including new trends, are ordinarily solicited by the editors, although we invite suggestions from all readers. Communications are   intended for the reporting of a special observation, either clinical or experimental, to address an hypothesis, to make a single point, or to pose a question.  Abstracted/Indexed in: Science Citation Index, SCISEARCH, Research Alert, Current Contents: Clinical  Medicine.

  • Protection Against Exposure to Ultraviolet Radiation. (WHO/EHG/95.17) This INTERSUN report provides information to people on how to protect themselves from the potentially harmful effects of exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation. Following a detailed review of the scientific literature conducted by a WHO Task Group meeting convened under joint sponsorship with the United Nations Environment Programme and the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection, a number of adverse health effects resulting from exposure to UV have been identified that need to be addressed through further research and more particularly through educational programmes for people most exposed to UV............

  • Psoriasis & Phototherapy Clinic VANCOUVER HOSPITAL'S.``Psoriasis & Phototherapy  Clinic is the largest and busiest  clinic of its type in Canada! Since it opened its doors in February 1976, the clinic has expanded to meet the increased demand for its services. In 1995 over 43,000 treatment visits were recorded. The clinic is affiliated with the UBC Division of Dermatology and offers programs that treat and educate patients with common skin diseases such as psoriasis, eczema/atopic dermatitis and scleroderma. Treatments like ultraviolet light treatments are used to slow down the growth of skin cells and ease skin irritation. The clinic also provides teaching to residents and medical students and conducts clinical research in psoriasis and photodermatology. Co-directors, Dr. Harvey Lui and Dr. Jerry Shapiro, Clinical Resource Nurses and a receptionist staff the clinic. The Psoriasis & Phototherapy Clinic (formerly called the Psoriasis Daycare Unit) moved from the old Shaughnessy Site to its new home at Vancouver Hospital in September of 1995. It is now located on the first floor of The Skin Care Centre at 835 West 10th Avenue and is open Monday to Friday, from 0700 to 1900. If you'd like to learn more about the Psoriasis & Phototherapy Clinic please call: 604.875.5758 ``

Electrologists also use this typing for determinations of shortwave use. Now that laser use has become common, there is another scale that is used as a diagnostic tool. It has been found in laser resurfacing evaluations that the patient’s grandparents ethnicity is a factor. The Lancer Ethnicity Scale or LES was developed by Harold A. Lancer, MD of the UCLA School of Medicine.`` by SHELBY OWENS, CME

About three hundred delegates attended the unification congress. And according to Dr. Glen Calderhead, Secretary-General of the association, paid members of WALT number approximately five hundred. WALT pursues its mission of research, education, and clinical application of laser therapy via workshops, biennial congresses and by regular publication of the journal, Laser Therapy.``
