Function-specific homeostasis (FSH) has been defined as a negative-feedback response of a biosystem to maintain its interior function-specific conditions so that the function is perfectly performed. There is no photobiomodulation of intranasal low intensity laser therapy (ILILT) on a function in its FSH, but ILILT could modulate a function far from its FSH. This rehabilitation has been found to be mediated by the ratio of intracellular nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) and its reduced…

Therapeutic potential of intranasal photobiomodulation therapy for neurological and neuropsychiatric disorders: a narrative review

Evidence shows that nostril-based PBMT improves blood rheology and cerebral blood flow, so that, without needing to puncture blood vessels, i-PBMT may have equivalent results to a peripheral intravenous laser irradiation procedure.

Transcutaneous systemic photobiomodulation reduced lung inflammation in experimental model of asthma by altering the mast cell degranulation and interleukin 10 level

This study showed that transcutaneous systemic irradiation reduced lung inflammation by altering mast cells degranulation and IL-10 level and increased the levels of interleukin 10 in the BAL fluid without altering the gene expression of cytokines in the lung tissue.

Photobiomodulation on Stress Timon

Photobiomodulation is a nondamaged modulation of laser irradiation or monochromatic light (LI) on a biosystem function that promotes the normalization of the dysfunctional FNS and then upgrades the normal function.


The PBM of a LIL may self-adaptively modulate SIRT1 activity far from its FSSA1 until theFSSA1 is established, therefore, LPBM may be mediated by sirtuin1.

Russian low level laser therapy techniques for brain disorders

[The commonest therapeutic methods for laser irradiation of blood].

The present article was designed to review the main currently available techniques for laser irradiation of blood which are presented in the form of tables (charts).

Photobiomodulation of acute pain syndrome after septoplasty

The group of patients with PBMT showed better results in pain and heart rate variability compared to the classical rehabilitation of patients after septoplasty.

Microenvironment Dependent Photobiomodulation on Function-Specific Signal Transduction Pathways

A low level laser irradiation or monochromatic light may promote the activation of partially activated NSP and/or its redundant NSP so that it may induce the second-order phase transition of a function from its dysfunctional one far from its FSH to its normal one in a function-specific microenvironment.

Laser blood illumination: the main therapeutic techniques (systemized literature review)

The analysis of the publications devoted to the research of the mechanisms of the therapeutic effect of one of the most known low level laser therapy techniques –laser blood illumination, as well as

Only lasers can be used for low level laser therapy

The study analyzes publications from 1973 to 2016, in which laser and conventional light sources are compared, and it is uniquely identified that the most important parameter that determines the efficiency of lasers is monochromaticity.



The effect of low-level laser in knee osteoarthritis: a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled trial.

The results show that LLLT reduces pain in KOA and improves microcirculation in the irradiated area.

Effects of allicin supplementation on plasma markers of exercise-induced muscle damage, IL-6 and antioxidant capacity

It is suggested that allicin might be a potential agent to reduce exercise-induced muscle damage (EIMD), interleukin-6 (IL-6), and antioxidative capacity, and perceived muscle soreness after exercise in well-trained athletes.

Low-Level Laser Therapy Facilitates Superficial Wound Healing in Humans: A Triple-Blind, Sham-Controlled Study.

The untreated wounds in subjects treated with LLLT contracted more than the wounds in the sham group, so L LLT may produce an indirect healing effect on surrounding tissues, and data indicate that LLLt is an effective modality to facilitate wound contraction of partial-thickness wounds.

Quercetin reduces illness but not immune perturbations after intensive exercise.

Quercetin versus placebo ingestion did not alter exercise-induced changes in several measures of immune function, but it significantly reduced URTI incidence in cyclists during the 2-wk period after intensified exercise.

[Indicators of the activity of the immune system during laser therapy of vasomotor rhinitis].

The efficacy of laser therapy of vasomotor rhinitis became optimal on irradiation day 6 or 7 and reached a maximum on day 10, and a significant increase of T- and B-lymphocytes and the leucocyte migration inhibition reaction were measured.

The hypothesis that curcumin can reduce inflammation and offset some of the performance deficits associated with eccentric exercise-induced muscle damage is supported.

Oxygen, Oxidants, and Antioxidants in Wound Healing

Strategies to manipulate the redox environment in the wound are likely to be of outstanding significance in wound healing.

Indicators of the activity of the immune system during laser therapy of vasomotor rhinitis

The efficacy of laser therapy of vasomotor rhinitis became optimal on irradiation day 6 or 7 and reached a maximum on day 10, and a significant increase of T- and B-lymphocytes and the leucocyte migration inhibition reaction were measured.

Quercetin increases brain and muscle mitochondrial biogenesis and exercise tolerance.

The benefits of querectin on fitness without exercise training may have important implications for enhancement of athletic and military performance and may also extend to prevention and/or treatment of chronic diseases.

Clinically, MLT could amplify the anti-tumoral activity of low dose IL-2, induce objective tumor regression, and prolong progression-free time and overall survival, and the finding that MLT stimulates IL-12 production from human monocytes only if incubated in presence ofIL-2 further supports this concept.
