Paper Abstract

In this paper the results of an experimental-clinical study substantiating the use of low level laser radiation (LLLR) at certain wavelengths for treatment of cancer patients are given. In the first part of this study, with animal experiments, laser action parameters providing reliable renewal and regeneration stimulation are selected. It is shown that, under the effect of LLLR, the speed and quality of regeneration in wounds after tumor removal are changed as well as the intensity of dissemination and tumor growth. A change also occurs in the functional properties of lymphocytes, which have immunological control in the organism. On the basis of the experimental data obtained, the contingent of cancer patients for whom LLLR can be recommended was determined.
