[The influence of ultrahigh-frequency electromagnetic radiation and low-intensity laser radiation on the body core temperature and basal metabolism in rats with systemic inflammation].

Abstract

The effects of ultrahigh-frequency electromagnetic radiation (UHF EMR) and low-intensity laser irradiation (LILI) on the body and skin temperature, oxygen consumption, production of carbon dioxide and heat release were investigated in the experiments on intact rats and during LPS-induced polyphasic fever. It was found that UHF EMR with the wavelength of 4,9 mm, 5,6 mm or 7,1 mm and LILI with the wavelength of 0.47 microm, 0.67 microm and 0.87 microm caused modulation of basal metabolism and thermal response to systemically administered lipopolysaccharide (LPS). These findings suggest that the most pronounced antipyretic and hypometabolic effects were observed after the treatment with UHF EMR at 7,1 mm and LILI at 470 microm.
