SOLAR ULTRAVIOLET RADIATION AND THE RISK OF INFECTIOUS DISEASE: SUMMARY OF A WORKSHOP


  • *Editor's note: This Invited Review departs from the standard review format of Photochemistry and Photobiology in order to provide readers with reviews of previously published literature in several areas related to possible links between exposure to solar UV radiation and infectious disease. Because these reviews were part of a workshop, discussion summaries are included which provide information and alternative opinions. Citations could not be included for the statements made in the discussion.

  • †Disclaimer: The research paper has been reviewed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Health Effects Research Laboratory and the UV Monitoring and Assessment Program Panel (UMAP) and approved for publication. Approval does not signify that the contents necessarily reflect the views and policies of the agency and UMAP, nor does mention of trade names or commercial products constitute endorsement or recommendation for use. All direct costs for the workshop were borne by UMAP. The EPA did not contribute any funds toward the meeting.
