Paper Abstract

One of the promising therapeutic effects of photobiomodulation is the ability to modulate the redox homeostasis of a cell. While this effect may be beneficial in treating chronic or infected wounds by boosting the antimicrobial capabilities of neutrophils, it is poorly understood how the redox state of bacteria is altered due to exposure to the red or near-infrared light. To address this, we present the effects of 690 nm light on the response of S. aureus to exogenous hydrogen peroxide at a range of different optical parameters including irradiance and fluence.
