Paper Abstract

Chronic rhinitis is a common disease. The patients feel troubled by nose obstruction and discharge. One-hundred-fifty cases were treated by an He-Ne laser from 1982 to 1991. Entire recovery was achieved in 16 cases; improvement was seen in 52 cases in which symptoms and signs notably declined; 41 cases were helped; and inefficacy was seen in 40 cases. The total effect rate was 73.3 percent. To study the mechanism of the disease cured with an He-Ne laser illumination experiments were performed by taking temperature, examination of blood, change of the hemostreamgraph in the brain and attenuated bacteria.
