Issue 12 of PPS now available to read online!

The last issue of the year for Photochemical & Photobiological Sciences is now published online.  This issue includes a collection of articles looking at the issues surrounding potential increase of vitamin D status to provide better health.  Read the Editorial by Guest Editor Vivienne Reeve here.

PPS issue 12, 2012 - front coverThe front cover of this issue features work by Pameli Datta and colleagues from Cophagen University Hospital, Lillebaelt Hospital and the Danish Meteorological Institute, Denmark.  The authors compared the doses of natural solar ultraviolet radiation (UVR) and artificial UVR needed to increase serum 25-hydroxyvitamin-D3.  The team found that artificial UVR was estimated to be at least eight times more effective in inducing 25-hydroxyvitamin-D3 synthesis than solar UVR.
