  1. Assessment of sun sensitivity by questionnaire : validity of items and formulation of a prediction rule.

    Article - En anglais

    Sun sensitivity is a major risk factor for melanoma, basal cell carcinoma, and squamous cell carcinoma of the skin.

    Several variables have been used in epidemiologic studies to measure sun sensitivity.

    The present study assesses their validity and combines them to form a prediction rule for an objective measure of sun sensitivity, the minimal erythema dose of ultraviolet B radiation required to produce visibility reddened skin (MED).

    Participants were 116 patients with psoriasis presenting for phototherapy who completed a sun sensitivity questionnaire.
