Oral mucositis (OM) is a significant early complication of hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT). This phase III randomized double-blind placebo-controlled study was designed to compare the ability of 2 different low level GaAlAs diode lasers (650 nm and 780 nm) to prevent oral mucositis in HCT patients conditioned with chemotherapy or chemoradiotherapy.(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Phototherapy with low intensity laser irradiation has shown to be effective in promoting the proliferation of different cells. The aim of this in vitro study was to evaluate the potential effect of laser phototherapy (660 nm) on human dental pulp stem cell (hDPSC) proliferation. STUDY DESIGN/MATERIALS AND METHODS The hDPSC cell(More)
The aim of this in vitro study was to analyze the influence of different power densities of low-intensity laser therapy (LILT) on the biomodulation of human gingival fibroblasts. The cells were cultured in nutritional deficit. Laser irradiation was carried out with a GaAlAs diode laser (λ-660 nm, 2 J/cm2). The irradiation was done twice with 12-h interval(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Little is known about the intracellular response of epithelial cells to phototherapy. The aim of this in vitro study was to analyze the effect of phototherapy with low-energy lasers with different wavelengths and powers on cultured epithelial cell growth under different nutritional conditions. STUDY DESIGN/MATERIALS AND METHODS(More)
BACKGROUND DATA AND OBJECTIVE Oral mucositis (OM) is one of the worst cytotoxic effects of chemotherapy and radiotherapy in patients undergoing hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT), and it causes severe morbidity. Laser phototherapy has been considered as an alternative therapy for prevention and treatment of OM. The aim of this study was to describe(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Oral mucositis is a dose-limiting and painful side effect of radiotherapy (RT) and/or chemotherapy in cancer patients. The purpose of the present study was to analyze the effect of different protocols of laser phototherapy (LPT) on the grade of mucositis and degree of pain in patients under RT. PATIENTS AND METHODS Thirty-nine(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this case report was to evaluate the efficacy of phototherapy using light-emitting diodes (LEDs) to prevent oral mucositis in a Hodgkin's disease patient treated with the ABVD (doxorubicin [Adriamycin], bleomycin, vinblastine, and dacarbazine) chemotherapy regimen. BACKGROUND DATA Mucositis is a common dose-limiting complication(More)
Alternative treatment for recurrent labial infection by herpes simplex virus (HSV) have been considered. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of laser phototherapy in prevention and reduction of severity of labial manifestations of herpes labialis virus. Seventy-one patients, divided into experimental (n = 41) and control (n = 30) groups(More)
The recurrent herpes labialis (RHL) is a chronic lifelong infection that affects a great part of the world’s population. It is caused by the herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV 1) [1]. The first virus contact causes the primary infection, which is characterized by symptoms like multiple oral vesicles, fever, chills, fatigue, and muscle aches, lasting for 10 to(More)
The diagnosis of Val30Met familial amyloidotic polyneuropathy (FAP) is based on genetic tests, clinical manifestations, familial history and biopsy of peripheral tissues (e.g. rectum, abdominal fat pad, sural nerve, and minor salivary gland) to confirm the presence of amyloid deposits. The aim of this study was to determine the frequency of amyloid deposits(More)
