Therapeutic Effects of Artificial Light Therapy on Allergic Bronchial Asthma in a Mouse Model

  title={Therapeutic Effects of Artificial Light Therapy on Allergic Bronchial Asthma in a Mouse Model},
  author={Inomata and C. Chaolong},
Sunlight reportedly has an anti-inflammatory ability to facilitate excretion of inflammatory substances or an ability to promote repair and regeneration of damaged tissues [3]. However, changes in lifestyle or working style and anxiety regarding the risk for sunburn or skin cancer caused by ultraviolet rays have presently decreased the amount of time people spend sunbathing [4]. Additionally, patients who require hospitalization or recuperation at home are confined to an indoor lifestyle. We… Expand
