Spanish term or phrase: Utilizando este mismo principio activo, se creó la luz UVB banda angosta (luz ul
Luz UVB banda angosta
Hasta ahora uno de los mejores tratamientos contra el vitiligo era la PUVA terapia, la que consiste en exponer la zona afectada a una luz UVA (negra) para obtener la repigmentación, pero siempre precedida por el consumo (una hora y media antes) de fármacos llamados psoralenos, los que actúan como potenciadores (fotosensibilizantes) de la luz. De esta manera, la luz activa las células pigmentarias, melanocitos, que están "dormidas", las cuales comienzan a producir nuevamente la melanina, que es la sustancia que da color a la piel según su concentración. Utilizando este mismo principio activo, se creó la luz UVB banda angosta (luz ultravioleta tipo B), con la que se han conseguido mejores efectos.

Oops! It should be "UVB narrow band"

Please note, everyone, that Liz is correct. "Principle" is sufficient; "active principle" is a pharmaceutical term that doesn't seem appropriate here. I have modified the glossary entry accordingly.

neutral  liz askew: I always thought "principio activo" = active ingredient.http://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=en&client=firefox-a&channe...

  -> Right! So the "active" should come out.

agree  Dr. Andrew Frankland: And also with Liz for "active ingredient" rather than "active principle"

  -> Hi Andrew! I think it was a mistake in the Spanish - it's not about the "active ingredient" but rather simply about a principle (not otherwise qualified).
