Sunlight Effects on Immune System: Is There Something Else in addition to UV-Induced Immunosuppression?

Table 1

Summary of irradiation protocols producing UV-induced immunosuppression. The experimental design of all the papers cited in the table included the irradiation before the sensitization stage of the immune responses. CHS: contact hypersensitivity; DTH: delayed type hypersensitivity; Oxa: oxazolone; DNFB: 2,4-dinitrofluorobenzene; Ova: ovalbumin.
