Paper Abstract

Intravascular and percutaneous irradiation of blood by low power light of He-Ne laser (wavelength 632.8 nm) is used for therapy of a wide range of diseases. Proof and optimization of photobiostimulation of human organism depends on the results of investigations in the following areas: (1) clarification of the physical and chemical mechanisms of biostimulation; (2) development of mathematical and physical methods of laser light dosimetry within tissues; and (3) accumulation of impartial clinical information. In the paper, a short survey of the hypotheses of red laser light biostimulating effect on blood is made, the problems of dosimetry during percutaneous laser treatment of blood are discussed and some results of clinical investigations are presented.
