OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to examine the effect of He-Ne and nitrogen lasers on the apoptosis of PMN in normal versus burn patients. BACKGROUND DATA Nitrogen and He-Ne laser exposure increases the apoptotic death rate for human macrophages. Inflammation is a major consequence of thermal injury, and polymorphonuclear cell (PMN) infiltration exacerbates inflammatory process through the release of proinflammatory cytokines. The apoptotic death instead of necrotic death of PMN under the… CONTINUE READING
