Photosensitization Chemically Induced: Mechanisms and Clinical Aspects
Photobiology is a relatively recent science referring to the influences and interactions of non-ionising electromagnetic radiation, both from the sun and man-made sources, on biological systems and also the use of such radiation to investigate biological processes. If non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation may have very beneficial effects, exagerated exposure to solar radiation may also be deleterious: cutaneous photosensitization is one of the most commonly observed reaction.
