Photocarcinogenesis & photoprotection

Author: Ratan Singh Ray
Publisher: Singapore : Springer, [2018]
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
This book highlights the problem of UV-R-induced photocarcinogenesis and its molecular mechanism. It covers different photosensitive xenobiotics (drugs, cosmetics, and environmental pollutants) and their photosensitization mechanisms under ambient UV-R exposure. It also summarizes the role of nanotechnology in skin cancer remedies. It provides a brief overview of the various novel nanocarriers for cosmeceuticals  Read more...
