Optical properties of human skin, subcutaneous and mucous tissues in the wavelength range from 400 to 2000 nm

The absorption and reduced scattering coefficients of human skin, subcutaneous adipose tissue and mucous in the wavelength range from 400 to 2000 nm were measured. These values have been used in modelling tissue-light interactions.

Intracellular signaling cascades following light irradiation

This paper reviews the available literature on molecular signaling pathways involved in photobiomodulation therapy stimulation for the enhancement of cell proliferation, differentiation, or apoptosis in various indications. The pathways through activating receptor tyrosine kinases are also highlighted in LLLT-induced neuroprotection, wound healing, and skeletal muscle regeneration.
