How Vitamin D Inhibits Inflammation

Researchers at National Jewish Health have discovered specific molecular and signaling events by which vitamin D inhibits inflammation. In their experiments, they showed that low levels of Vitamin D, comparable to levels found in millions of people, failed to inhibit the inflammatory cascade, while levels considered adequate did inhibit inflammatory signaling. They reported their results in the March 1, 2011, issue of The Journal of...

The prevention of inflammatory complications in mandibular fractures by using infrared laser

Stomatologiia (Mosk). 1998;77(4):20-2. [The prevention of inflammatory complications in mandibular fractures by using infrared laser and magnetic-laser radiation] [Article in Russian] Makarenkov VV, Shargorodskii AG. A total of 102 patients with mandibular fractures were treated by multiple-modality treatment including infrared (IR) laser exposure and magnetic and laser therapy (MT). For monitoring the treatment efficacy and predicting its results, nonspecific defense factors and intensity of free-radical...

Ga-Al-As laser irradiation inhibits neuronal activity associated with inflammation

Acupunct Electrother Res. 1994 Jun-Sep;19(2-3):141-51. Ga-Al-As laser irradiation inhibits neuronal activity associated with inflammation. Sato T, Kawatani M, Takeshige C, Matsumoto I. Department of Anesthesiology, Saitama Medical College, Saitama, Japan. A Ga-Al-As diode system that produces low-energy red light (830 nm, 40 mW) has been used for the treatment of many kinds of pain. The mechanism of action of this new laser irradiation for analgesia...
