Effectiveness of physiotherapy and GaAlAs laser in the management of temporomandibular joint disorders

Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) is a treatment method commonly used in physiotherapy for musculoskeletal disorders. The aim of this study was to monitor the function of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and surrounding tissues and compare the objective measurements of the effect of LLLT.

Laser photobiomodulation of gene expression and release of growth factors and cytokines from cells in culture: a review of human and animal studies

The aim of this paper was to review experimental studies of laser irradiation of human and animal cells in culture to assess the photobiomodulatory effects of such irradiation on gene expression and release of growth factors and CYTOKINES.

Ga-As (808 nm) laser irradiation enhances ATP production in human neuronal cells in culture

The authors conclude that laser application to NHNP cells significantly increases ATP production which may explain the beneficial effects of low-level laser therapy (LLLT) in stroked rats.
