According to our aim of this experiment, we divided our cells into three groups, one group treated with 40 mJ/cm [sup]2 of UVB irradiation, one with 80 mJ/cm [sup]2, and the rest one, as a control group, with the same culture except UVB irradiation.
Otro estudio con veinte pacientes en estadios IA, IB o IIA que se dividieron asi: grupo I (10 pacientes, ocho con estadio en parches y dos en placas) recibieron NB-UVB en hemicuerpo derecho y PUVA en hemicuerpo izquierdo durante 48 sesiones, y el grupo II (10 pacientes, seis con estadio en parches y cuatro en placas) recibieron NB- UVB mas psoralenos en hemicuerpo derecho y PUVA en hemicuerpo izquierdo, con un total de 36 sesiones.

Abstract: The object of this study was to establish a minimum dose of ultraviolet B (UVB) radiation capable of producing an erythemal reaction in budgerigars (Melopsittacus undulatus), to determine a threshold dose of UVB for vitamin D photoconversion, and to investigate the use of safer UVB wavelengths.
