Paper Abstract

In recent years we have been working out a new method of treatment of steroid-resistant asthma -- extracorporeal He-Ne-laser blood irradiation. The procedures gave good clinical effect and allowed reduction of steroid dose in a majority of patients. The monocytes were investigated by luminol-dependent chemiluminescence and the method of living cell microcopy. Extracorporeal He-Ne laser blood irradiation normalized both monocytes chemiluminescence and cell oscillation in asthmatic patients significantly earlier than in cases of ordinary treatment, although the mechanisms of action of He-Ne-laser irradiation upon blood steroid-resistant asthmatics were not fully determined.
