Tamesis M, Morelli J

Pediatr Dermatol. 2010;27(5):437-45.

A study conducted by Tamesis and Morelli investigated the use of different treatment modalities for vitiligo. All ranges of treatment options were considered in this study, including topical creams, phototherapy, and combining genetic and immunologic factors to find the most effective option. Overall, “narrow-band ultraviolet B (UVB) has better overall re-pigmentation rates and safety profile than either topical or oral psoralens and ultraviolet A (PUVA).”
