The anti-inflammatory mechanism of 635 nm light-emitting-diode irradiation compared with existing COX inhibitors.

Abstract

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Inhibition of cyclooxygenase (COX) and prostaglandin E(2) (PGE(2)) protects cells against cell injury in specific pathophysiological situations: inflammation and oxidative stress. Although the anti-inflammatory effects have been reported in clinical fields for specific wavelength irradiation during wound healing, the physiological… (More)
