Experiments carried out in mice about 30 years ago
indicated that the exposure to ultraviolet radiation
(UVR) could down-regulate cell-mediated immunity.
Since then, considerable progress has been made to
elucidate the complex cascade that starts with the
absorption of photons at or just below the body surface
and ends with the generation of T cells that can
suppress immune responses.
