THE SCIENCE BEHIND LLLT
From molecular biology to cell and tissue level-
what are the mechanisms of action?
Nobel Prize for Low Level Laser Therapy
The guest editorial by Oshiro in this months Photomedicine journal reminds us that a Nobel Prize was awarded to Finsen for Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) almost a century ago (1903) for Lupus Vulgaris (a form of Tuberculosis). Of course it was not called LLLT back then as the laser had not been invented but the Photobiomodulation principles are the same. The best way to subscribe to this journal is by joining the World Association for Laser Therapy (WALT).

LLLT mechanism conference August 2009 USA – update
The American Society for Photobiology is the latest and probably most academic organisation to turn it’s gaze towards Low Level Light Therapy (rather than just laser).
August 7-8, 2009
If you have an academic interest in the mechanisms behind LLLT then this meeting might be the highlight of your year.
Fees to be determined
Speaker and topics to be announced
The meeting will be held at Goergen 101, University of Rochester, NY, USA
Google Map of location appears to be here (check it yourself to be sure)
Condylar growth with LLLT
TEHRAN. Retrognathism is a type of malocclusion which refers to a maxilla or mandible which is further posterior than would be expected. In this study the authors find that laser irradiation can stimulate mandibular condylar growth and subsequently cause mandibular advancement in rats and suggest that this might be used for improvement of mandibular retrognathism. An alternative to surgical mandibular lengthening ?

Muscle healing improved by low-level laser therapy
BRAZIL. Scientists at Universidade do Extremo Sul Catarinense evaluated the effect of laser on the mitochondrial respiratory chain after traumatic muscular injury on rats. Results showed that LLLT significantly increased the activities of complexes I, II, III, IV and succinate dehydrogenase suggesting that laser may induce an increase in mitochondrial ATP synthesis and accelerate the muscle healing process.
