Paper Abstract

An endogenous photostimulator (APhS) seems to be a very small physiotherapeutic device allowing to irradiate the part of the gastrointestinal tract (GIT) with light of visible range especially in cases when modern endoscopic equipment cannot be applied. There was studied the effect of a photostimulator on composition of intestinal microflora and the immunologic inspection of patients with dysbacteriosis (dysbioses) of the intestine as a result of diseases of the gastrointestinal tract and after antibacterial therapy for other disturbances. The obtained results are comparable with indices of the control group. At the same time, it should be noted that stimulation of growth of natural flora is recorded in the main group of patients which inhibits the activity of conditioned pathogenic microflora. Indications and contraindications for application of the method of endogenic phototherapy using a photostimulator are defined. The statistical analysis of results of studying the immunity indices testifies to the fact that endogenic phototherapy leads to increased activity of the humoral link of the immunity in this category of patients. Thus, endogenic phototherapy seems to be an effective method of treatment of patients with disturbances of microflora composition of the gastrointestinal tract.
