  • Supplies a complete overview of the state of the art in photomedicine, from basic science to translational research and clinical treatment
  • Examines the diseases and conditions associated with UV/PVA phototherapy, photodynamic therapy, laser surgery and medicine, and low-level laser/light therapy
  • Takes an interdisciplinary approach by integrating knowledge and techniques from chemistry, physics, engineering, the biological sciences, and clinical medicine
  • Addresses photocarcinogenesis, photodermatoses, photoallergies, and photoaging
  • Explores timely topics related sunscreens and climate change-associated UV exposure


This handbook thoroughly covers both therapeutic applications of light and diseases/conditions caused by light exposure. It also discusses the underlying cellular mechanisms and molecular synthesis of photosensitizer dyes used in phototherapy. An introductory section provides the necessary background for newcomers to the field, briefly tracing the history of the field and summarizing fundamental principles. Each subsequent section addresses a major subject of the field, including UV/PVA phototherapy, photodynamic therapy, laser surgery and medicine, and low-level laser/light therapy.
