 Phototherapy suppresses immunity which can lead to the progression of other infections such as human papilloma virus (HPV). A 2010 study used a nested polymerase chain reaction, to analyze skin biopsies taken a from 20 psoriasis patients under phototherapy (UVB) and 20 untreated psoriatic patients. The authors were able to detect viruses in 60% of the treatment but in none of the controls.(({{pubmed>​long:​20415738}})) ​ Phototherapy suppresses immunity which can lead to the progression of other infections such as human papilloma virus (HPV).

 +1,25(OH)2D3 resulted in suppression of proinflammatory cytokine response in vitro
 +First, we carried out LPS and Pam3Cys stimulation on PBMC with the addition of 100 nM 1,​25(OH)2D3. After 24 h, IL-6 secretion was reduced by 53% and 29% upon Pam3Cys and LPS stimulation,​ respectively,​ in the cells treated with 1,25(OH)2D3 (Fig. 1a). A significant drop in TNF-α production by 17% (Pam3Cys stimulation) and 35% (LPS stimulation) was also observed with 1,25(OH)2D3 at 24 h. Having demonstrated that 1,25(OH)2D3 had the capacity to modulated IL-6 and TNF-α response in vitro, and with the understanding that physiological vitamin D3 levels in the body may vary through the seasons, we validate these observations in vivo in a cohort of healthy volunteers.(({{pubmed>​long:​21323660}}))
  
 A 2011 study by Damian //et al.// concluded that exposure to sunlight even at suberythemal levels – sunlight which doesn'​t cause redness – is "​profoundly immunosuppressive"​ in humans and that it is the immune-suppressive effects of sunlight that play a central role in skin carcinogenesis.(({{pubmed>​long:​21375518}})) A 2011 study by Damian //et al.// concluded that exposure to sunlight even at suberythemal levels – sunlight which doesn'​t cause redness – is "​profoundly immunosuppressive"​ in humans and that it is the immune-suppressive effects of sunlight that play a central role in skin carcinogenesis.(({{pubmed>​long:​21375518}}))
