Paper Abstract

We used laser therapies for viral hepatitis since 1993 and for HIV-patients since 1995. For these purposes we developed the special infrared laser and proposed some schemes of laser action on organism. Our laser works in pulse-periodical regime on the wavelength 890 nm with an average power of laser radiation (10 divided by 60) mW. All laser action was produced transcutaneous only. We did not observe any side effects or negative results from laser therapy with our laser. The treatment of viral hepatitis was produced by means of irradiation a blood in cubital veins, liver and thymus (breast bone area). Laser therapy was produced both on the usual base and disintoxical therapies. More than 300 viral hepatitis patients had received the laser treatment and for the most of them it gave a positive results. The treatment of HIV-patients was produced by means of irradiation six areas of their organism, which are responsible for immune system work. All our HIV-patients (25 men) who received laser treatment live up to now.
