Paper Abstract

An investigation was made of the effect (lambda) equals 0.63 micrometers diode laser radiation with the energy density of 0.6 to 0.8 J cm-2 on parturients affected by nipples' rhagades. In our experiments, we determined the content of prolactin (PRL), follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), luteinizing hormone (LH), estradiol (E2), and of progesterone (P) in the parturients' blood serum. It was found that laser radiation produced an insignificant effect on the prolactic (PRL) content in parturients with the normal lactation level. On the contrary, it produced a stimulating effect on the PRL level in parturients with hypogalactia. Possibly, laser radiation promoted the decrease in the FSH level in the parturients' blood serum. It was also found that this laser radiation produced an insignificant effect on the levels of LH, estradiol (E2), and of progesterone. Women subsequently affected by mastitis exhibited a significantly higher PRL level in their blood serum, as compared with women of the control group.
