More experience will be needed to firmly establish the safety of narrowband UVB phototherapy. The excimer laser is a powerful beam of 308 nm light (another form of narrowband ultraviolet light) that has been used successfully to treat localised plaques of psoriasis including those on the palms and soles.18 Information for Readers Menter A, Korman NJ, Elmets CA,  et al.  Guidelines of care for the management of psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis, section 4: guidelines of care for the management and treatment of psoriasis with traditional systemic agents.  J Am Acad Dermatol. 2009;61(3):451-485PubMedGoogle ScholarCrossref Conflict of interest: none.

The causes of psoriasis are not fully understood and are the subject of ongoing research. In psoriasis, the immune system is mistakenly activated, which leads to overproduction of skin cells. Skin cells build up too rapidly on the surface of the skin, forming raised, red, scaly patches (called plaques). These plaques are often itchy and sometimes painful.

We included 59 RCTs with a total of 11,561 participants. Thirty studies were either conducted or sponsored by the manufacturer of the study medication. The risk of bias varied considerably among the included studies. For instance, most authors did not state the randomisation method and few addressed allocation concealment. Most findings were limited to short-term treatments, since most studies were conducted for less than six months. Only one trial investigated long-term therapy (12 months). Although we found a wide variety of different interventions, we limited the grading of the quality of evidence to three major comparisons: steroid versus vitamin D, two-compound combination of steroid and vitamin D versus steroid monotherapy and versus vitamin D.
