Photo-Protection Trial (NB-UVB vs. Placebo) in High-risk Hospitalized COVID-19 Patients

The purpose of this study to evaluate the translational application of the safe and effective treatment of Narrow-Band Ultraviolet light B-band (NB-UVB) to high-risk COVID-19 patients in an effort to improve their immune and hemostatic imbalance to increase survival and improve outcomes.

FACTS ABOUT UV LIGHT

UV Light & Our Biology
The impact of UV Light on our biology is so important that it is broken into 3 distinct spectrums (UVA, UVB and UVC).
UVB
We are focused on the immune-modulating properties of UVB.
UVB Stabilizes Our Immune System
Our Immune system hungers for UV light - "Following exposure of humans to sunlight to phototherapy, there are alterations in the number, phenotype and function of circulating blood cells."

UVB Treatment ≠ to Melanoma
"Multiple studies specifically assessing the carcinogenic potential of NB-UVB did not find an increased risk of skin cancer in treated patients. Unfortunately, there are few prospective studies assessing the risk of skin cancer in patients with psoriasis treated with NB-UVB. Because of the theoretical possibility of this risk, physicians should use caution in prescribing NB-UVB for patients with a history of melanoma, multiple nonmelanoma skin cancers, arsenic intake, or exposure to ionizing radiation." From The Joint American American Academy of Dermatology 2019
