Immunological effects of solarium exposure.
 Hersey P, Bradley M, Hasic E, Haran G, Edwards A, McCarthy WH.
  "Normal volunteers (hospital and university staff) underwent a 12 half-hour exposure to a commercially available solarium on consecutive days excluding Saturday and Sunday, to acquire a suntan. Tests of immune function were carried out before, on completion and 2 weeks after exposure. A number of abnormalities were found in the exposed subjects including significant decrease in T 4 and T4/T8 which persisted 2 weeks after exposure".
