Bright light treatment used for adaptation to night work and re-adaptation back to day life. A field study at an oil platform in the North Sea. (1/446)

Night workers complain of sleepiness, reduced performance and disturbed sleep due to lack of adjustment of the circadian rhythm. In simulated night-work experiments scheduled exposure to bright light has been shown to reduce these complaints. Here we studied the effects of bright light treatment on the adaptation to 14 days of consecutive night work at an oil platform in the North Sea, and the subsequent readaptation to day life at home, using the Karolinska sleep/wake diary. Bright light treatment of 30 min per exposure was applied during the first 4 nights of the night-shift period and the first 4 days at home following the shift period. The bright light exposure was scheduled individually to phase delay the circadian rhythm. Bright light treatment modestly facilitated the subjective adaptation to night work, but the positive effect of bright light was especially pronounced during the re-adaptation back to day life following the return home. Sleepiness was reduced and the quality of day was rated better after exposure to bright light. The modest effect of bright light at the platform was, possibly, related to the finding that the workers seemed to adapt to night work within a few days even without bright light. These results suggest that short-term bright light treatment may help the adaptation to an extended night-work period, and especially the subsequent re-adaptation to day life.  (+info)

Light treatment enhances photoreceptor survival in dystrophic retinas of Royal College of Surgeons rats. (2/446)

PURPOSE: To determine whether treatment with bright light elicits a protective response that enhances photoreceptor survival in Royal College of Surgeons (RCS) rats with inherited retinal degeneration. METHODS: RCS rats were illuminated for 10 to 12 hours with 130 foot-candles (fc) of white or green light. Untreated littermates that were kept under low cyclic light levels were used as control subjects. Photoreceptor survival was determined by quantitative analysis of photoreceptor nuclei and ultrastructural assessment of cellular organization. Basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) and ciliary neurotrophic factor (CNTF) gene expression were determined at the mRNA and protein levels. RESULTS: Treatments of RCS rats with a single dose of bright light on postnatal day 23 (P23) greatly enhanced photoreceptor survival. Ultrasturctural analysis revealed intact inner segments in light-treated retinas, whereas in untreated retinas only remnants of inner segments were observed. By P42, numerous viable nuclei were counted in the posterior retina of light-treated rats, whereas most of the remaining nuclei in untreated RCS rat retinas were highly pyknotic. At 2.5 days after treatment with a single dose of bright light, bFGF gene expression was significantly higher than in untreated RCS rat retinas. By P42, bFGF protein levels were still significantly higher in the treated retinas. CONCLUSIONS: Exogenous bFGF has been shown to promote photoreceptor survival in the RCS rat retina. Thus, the increased bFGF expression that was measured in the light-treated RCS rat retinas may be a protective response to light stress, which supports the observed rescue of photoreceptors in light-treated RCS rat retinas.  (+info)

Combination photoimmunotherapy and cisplatin: effects on human ovarian cancer ex vivo. (3/446)

BACKGROUND: Patients with ovarian cancer that is clinically resistant to cisplatin-based chemotherapy have little hope of a cure of their disease. Photoimmunotherapy, which involves the antibody-targeted delivery of a nontoxic photosensitizer that is activated to a cytotoxic state with visible light, may offer a new treatment option. Photoimmunotherapy may be applied intraperitoneally to target disseminated tumor. We tested the hypothesis that this treatment in combination with cisplatin potentiates cytotoxicity in ovarian cancer cell lines and primary cultures of human tumors. METHODS: Five human cancer cell lines (ovarian and breast) and 19 primary cultures were studied. The primary cultures were from solid and ascites tumor samples obtained from 14 patients with ovarian cancer who were undergoing primary surgery. The photosensitizer chlorin e(6) was conjugated to the F(ab')(2) fragment of the murine monoclonal antibody OC-125, which is directed against the antigen CA 125. Cytotoxicity was measured by the microculture tetrazolium assay. Treatments consisted of cisplatin alone, photoimmunotherapy alone, and photoimmunotherapy followed by cisplatin. The fractional product method was used to assess synergy in treatment effects. Ex vivo cultured human cells exhibiting 80% or greater survival at cisplatin concentrations of 10 microM for 24 hours were defined as cisplatin resistant for this study. RESULTS: When all cell types (cisplatin sensitive and cisplatin resistant) were considered together, combination treatment yielded cytotoxicity that was, on average, 6.9 times (95% confidence interval = 1.86-11.94) greater than that of cisplatin alone (two-sided P =.023). Cisplatin-resistant cells showed a synergistic effect of the two treatments (two-sided P =.044), while cisplatin-sensitive cells showed an additive effect. CONCLUSION: These ex vivo data suggest that platinum resistance in human ovarian cancer cells may be reversible by pretreatment with OC-125-targeted photoimmunotherapy. Further studies are required to confirm the efficacy of this approach in vivo.  (+info)

Atopic dermatitis: a review of diagnosis and treatment. (4/446)

Atopic dermatitis is a common, potentially debilitating condition that can compromise quality of life. Its most frequent symptom is pruritus. Attempts to relieve the itch by scratching simply worsen the rash, creating a vicious circle. Treatment should be directed at limiting itching, repairing the skin and decreasing inflammation when necessary. Lubricants, antihistamines and topical corticosteroids are the mainstays of therapy. When required, oral corticosteroids can be used. If pruritus does not respond to treatment, other diagnoses, such as bacterial overgrowth or viral infections, should be considered. Treatment options are available for refractory atopic dermatitis, but these measures should be reserved for use in unique situations and typically require consultation with a dermatologist or an allergist.  (+info)

Intermittent bright light and exercise to entrain human circadian rhythms to night work. (5/446)

Bright light can phase shift human circadian rhythms, and recent studies have suggested that exercise can also produce phase shifts in humans. However, few studies have examined the phase-shifting effects of intermittent bright light, exercise, or the combination. This simulated night work field study included eight consecutive night shifts followed by daytime sleep/dark periods (delayed 9 h from baseline). There were 33 subjects in a 2 x 2 design that compared 1) intermittent bright light (6 pulses, 40-min long each, at 5,000 lx) versus dim light and 2) intermittent exercise (6 bouts, 15-min long each, at 50-60% of maximum heart rate) versus no exercise. Bright light and exercise occurred during the first 6 h of the first three night shifts. The circadian phase marker was the demasked rectal temperature minimum. Intermittent bright-light groups had significantly larger phase delays than dim-light groups, and 94% of subjects who received bright light had phase shifts large enough for the temperature minimum to reach daytime sleep. Exercise did not affect phase shifts; neither facilitating nor inhibiting phase shifts produced by bright light.  (+info)

Comparison of the treatment of herpes genitalis in men with proflavine photoinactivation, idoxuridine ointment, and normal saline. (6/446)

36 male patients with genital infection by HSV confirmed by culture were each allocated to one of three treatment groups: (1) Proflavine photoinactivation, (2) 0.5 per cent. idoxuridine ointment (IDU), (3) Normal saline. They were assessed objectively at each attendance by measurement of the lesions with an operating microscope fitted with a measuring grid in one eyepiece. Material for culture for HSV was taken at each visit; the presence of symptoms (pain, discomfort, and irritation) was noted. The areas of lesions in the proflavine photoinactivation group remained larger significantly longer than in the other groups, the healing time was slower, and HSV could be isolated for longer. It is concluded that proflavine photoinactivation is of no greater value than 0.5 per cent. IDU or normal saline in the treatment of genital infection by HSV in the male.  (+info)

The urinary concentrating defect in the Gunn strain of rat. Role of bilirubin. (7/446)

The role of high serum and tissue levels of unconjegated bilirubin in the pathogenesis of the impaired urinary concentrating ability was investigated in homozygous (jj) Gunn rats with the congenital absence of hepatic glucuronyl transferase. Continuous phototherapy with blue fluorescent lights at a wave length of 460 nm or oral cholestyramine feeding or both reduced serum levels of unconjugated hilirubin to levels consistently below 3.0 mg/100 ml for several weeks in both weanling and adult jj Gunn rats. The renal concentrating defect was already present in weanling jj Gunn rats by 21 days of age. In treated weanling jj animals, maximum concentrating ability and the concentration of urea and nonurea solutes in the papilla and medulla, determined after 24 h of fluid deprivation, were normal when compared to unaffected heterozygous (Jj) littermates. Solute-free water reabsorption which is reduced in jaundiced jj Gunn rats was restored to normal in treated weanling jj rats. The tissue concentration of unconjugated bilirubin was reduced throughout the papilla and inner and outer medulla in the treated jj rats in comparison with untreated jj littermates. The defect in urinary concentrating ability was only partially reversible and sometimes irreversible in adult jj rats, probably because of permanent renal parenchymal damage occurring secondary to massive crystalline deposits in the papilla and medulla. It is concluded that unconjugated bilirubin is directly involved in the pathogenesis of the concentrating defect in jaundiced jj Gunn rats.  (+info)

Light therapy for seasonal affective disorder in primary care: randomised controlled trial. (8/446)

BACKGROUND: Studies of light therapy have not been conducted previously in primary care. AIMS: To evaluate light therapy in primary care. METHOD: Fifty-seven participants with seasonal affective disorder were randomly allocated to 4 weeks of bright white or dim red light. Baseline expectations for treatment were assessed. Outcome was assessed with the Structured Interview Guide for the Hamilton Depression Scale, Seasonal Affective Disorder Version. RESULTS: Both groups showed decreases in symptom scores of more than 40%. There were no differences in proportions of responders in either group, regardless of the remission criteria applied, with around 60% (74% white light, 57% red light) meeting broad criteria for response and 31% (30% white light, 33% red light) meeting strict criteria. There were no differences in treatment expectations. CONCLUSIONS: Primary care patients with seasonal affective disorder improve after light therapy, but bright white light is not associated with greater improvements.  (+info)

Bright Light Therapy is used to manage circadian rhythm disorders such as Delayed Sleep Phase Syndrome (DSPS), a condition which shifts the normal sleeping pattern outside what is considered the social norm. People who have DSPS generally dont fall asleep until several hours after Midnight and have trouble waking up in the morning, making adhering to a normal work or school schedule difficult. However, if allowed to follow their own schedules, their quality of sleep is otherwise normal.. Bright Light Therapy is used to gradually shift sleeping patterns to what we consider normal. For treatment, the timing of light exposure is critical. For DSPS, the light must be delivered to the retina as soon after spontaneous awakening as possible to achieve the desired effect. People have also reported success with lights that turn on shortly before awakening, to simulate dawn. Morning use may also be effective for non-24-hour sleep-wake syndrome, while evening use is recommended for advanced sleep phase ...

Fibreoptic phototherapy was more effective at lowering SBR than no treatment but less effective than conventional phototherapy (percentage change in SBR after 24 hours of treatment: WMD -10.7%, 95%CI -18.14, -3.26 and WMD 3.59%, 95%CI 1.27, 5.92 respectively). Fibreoptic phototherapy was equally as effective as conventional phototherapy in preterm infants and when two fibreoptic devices were used simultaneously (change in SBR after 24 hours of treatment: WMD 1.7%, 95%CI -2.65, 6.05 and change in SBR per day over whole treatment period: WMD 2.82%, 95%CI -1.84, 7.48 respectively). A combination of fibreoptic and conventional phototherapy was more effective than conventional phototherapy alone (duration of phototherapy: WMD -12.51 hr, 95%CI -16.00, -9.02, meta-analysis affected by heterogeneity). No conclusion can be made on the superiority of one fibreoptic device over another as the two studies comparing them (one favouring BiliBlanket, the other finding no difference) did not contain a common ...

My first impression of the Illumask Anti Aging Phototherapy was there was less light bulbs in the mask than I expected. I used the Illumask Anti Aging Phototherapy at night, right before bedtime. I found the treatment to be a little strange, as you cant really do anything but lay in bed with your eyes closed, for 15 minutes. Surprisingly, while listening to the tv, 15 minutes went by pretty quickly.. At about 10 days of consecutive use of the Illumask Anti Aging Phototherapy , I am quite happy with the results. I dont know if it is due to my other skincare routine, but my skin looks better. I feel that my skin is smoother, glows, and is more refined.. The downside of the Illumask Anti Aging Phototherapy is that it only lasts 30 treatments and will need to be replaced. I do think that the Illumask Anti Aging Phototherapy is a great beauty product, and I plan on buying it again.. *If you want a rechargeable phototherapy device, check out my review of the ANSR beam.. ...

Phototherapy (PT) is widely used and assumed to be safe as well as effective in reducing total bilirubin (TB) levels. Our recent NICHD Network Trial showed that aggressive use of phototherapy reduces neurodevelopmental impairment (NDI), but may increase deaths among ELBW infants. Among ventilator treated infants ,750 g birth weight (BW) (n =696), conservative Bayesian analyses (using a neutral prior probability) identified a 99% (posterior) probability that aggressive phototherapy reduced profound NDI but a 99% probability that it increased deaths relative to conservative phototherapy. The possibility that PT increases deaths among high risk infants is also suggested by the Collaborative Phototherapy trial (performed in the 1970s), the only large RCT in which LBW infants were randomly assigned to receive PT or no PT. The relative risk for death among those randomized to PT relative to those randomized to no PT was 1.32 (0.9-1.82) among all LBW infants and 1.49 (0.93-2.40) among ELBW infants. ...
The risk for major depression and obesity is increased in adolescents and adults with attention-deficit / hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and adolescent ADHD predicts adult depression and obesity. Non-pharmacological interventions to treat and prevent these co-morbidities are urgently needed. Bright light therapy (BLT) improves day-night rhythm and is an emerging therapy for major depression. Exercise intervention (EI) reduces obesity and improves depressive symptoms. To date, no randomized controlled trial (RCT) has been performed to establish feasibility and efficacy of these interventions targeting the prevention of co-morbid depression and obesity in ADHD. We hypothesize that the two manualized interventions in combination with mobile health-based monitoring and reinforcement will result in less depressive symptoms and obesity compared to treatment as usual in adolescents and young adults with ADHD. This trial is a prospective, pilot phase-IIa, parallel-group RCT with three arms (two add-on treatment
A report of a prediction rule for rebound hyperbilirubinemia (return of total serum bilirubin to phototherapy threshold within 72 hours of phototherapy termination) in newborns of at least 35 weeks gestation. Authors studied a group of ~7000 infants, 4.6% of whom had rebound hyperbilirubinemia. The formula is calculated as: 15 points if gestational age less than 38 weeks, minus 7 × (age in days at phototherapy initiation) minus 4 × (AAP phototherapy threshold − TSB at phototherapy termination) + 50. This score in turn can be applied to a curve (pictured) to predict rebound hyperbilirubinemia.. Chang 2016 (Pediatrics) , PubMed 12345678 , Author Search ...
Phototherapy (light therapy or UV therapy) is a very effective and safe treatment for inflammatory skin disorders.. It is used for the treatment of psoriasis, eczema and vitiligo most commonly; but does have several other indications.. It is usually recommended when topical therapies (creams, ointments, gels) are not leading to significant improvement or for widespread cutaneous disease where topical therapies can be difficult to apply regularly. Your dermatologist will advise if this treatment is appropriate for you.. Phototherapy often leads to significant improvement within several weeks and can lead to lasting remissions from disease. Usually a treatment course is 3x/week for 6-12 weeks with each treatment lasting seconds-minutes only.. At Perth Dermatology Clinic we offer phototherapy for the whole body and/or hands and feet.. The full cost of phototherapy is covered by Medicare (bulk billed).. Our phototherapy machines are imported from Germany and of the latest technology. Our machines ...
Improved insulin sensitivity and glucose tolerance may be attributable to vitamin D sufficiency. An experimental design was created to investigate the use of phototherapy to increase serum vitamin D levels and improve circulating blood glucose levels in pre-diabetics. Seven participants with a pre-diabetic condition were randomly allocated to either 3 months of phototherapy or no therapy. OGTT, HbA1c, and serum vitamin D levels were assessed before and after treatment. In 2 treatment participants, pre-diabetes status was reduced from combined IFG/IGT to iIFG in one and iIGT in the second, while 1 control participant developed combined IFG/IGT and another, type 2 diabetes. HbA1c values improved in the phototherapy group but not in the controls. Phototherapy also increased serum vitamin D levels in the treatment group but not in the controls. This pilot study suggests that the experimental protocol was effective and it should be implemented in a larger sample size to confirm those trends ...
The authors hypothesized that morning bright light therapy (7,000 lux white) would be an effective treatment for major depression during pregnancy compared with low-intensity placebo light therapy (70 lux red or dim light) when administered for 60 minutes daily for 5 weeks. This randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial was conducted in Switzerland and recruited from both university outpatient psychiatry and obstetric clinics. A total of 100 women were screened via telephone interview and 70 met criteria by scoring , 10 on the Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale (EPDS). A diagnosis of major depressive disorder was confirmed using the Structured Clinical Interview for DSM-IV.. Women were included if they were 18-45 years of age, between 4 and 32 weeks of gestation, medically healthy, with normal ocular function. All women had a score of , 20 on the Hamilton Depression Rating Scale (HDRS). Four women who had taken an antidepressant for more than 3 months without improvement were ...
1) WHAT IS NARROW BAND UVB LIGHT PHOTOTHERAPY?. UVB Phototherapy utilizes specialized light bulbs to treat various inflammatory skin conditions like psoriasis or eczema. Historically, exposure to natural sunlight was often associated with improvement of certain skin disorders. UV refers to the ultraviolet light spectrum. Narrow band refers to a few very specific wavelengths of light in the ultraviolet spectrum. These wavelengths were studied and found to be just as beneficial to your skin as the entire UV spectrum.. 2) HOW DOES LIGHT THERAPY WORK? Ultraviolet rays decrease skin inflammation when dosed properly.. 3) WHAT SKIN CONDITIONS CAN LIGHT THERAPY TREAT? Psoriasis, eczema, vitiligo, generalized itch, cutaneous lymphoma, lichen planus, and other rare skin conditions all can benefit from narrow band UVB light therapy.. 4 ) WHAT HAPPENS DURING A LIGHT THERAPY APPOINTMENT? A person enters a stand-up light booth- much like a typical tanning bed- lined with 48 specialized UVB light bulbs. During ...
If an infant spends an average of one less day under phototherapy lights do not underestimate the added benefit with respect to avoiding needle pokes. Typically such infants receive one poke a day to check how the decline is going. Shortening the course of phototherapy may translate into one or two less pokes or more and that is definitely a good thing!. Lastly I will leave you with a tip from my own practice which I have found very useful to eliminate at least one poke. When phototherapy is effective and the bilirubin is coming down (and is close to the threshold for stopping but not quite there yet) it is common for people on rounds to order another bilirubin for the morning and continue phototherapy until that result. The result comes back the following morning and the practitioner orders a follow-up bilirubin for the following day to check for the rebound.. An alternative strategy is to keep the infant on phototherapy overnight and rather than checking on the bilirubin in the morning ...
The effectiveness of phototherapy in relation to the initial clearance of psoriasis is well documented, but what about after your psoriasis has cleared? Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition and often requires long-term maintenance therapy to manage flare-ups and help keep the psoriasis at bay. So how does phototherapy stack up in terms of maintenance therapy? Well we are glad you asked!. The National Psoriasis Foundations spring 2013 issue of Psoriasis Forum addresses this very question in the article Merits of Maintenance Phototherapy for Psoriasis. According to the authors, Ultraviolet therapy remains one of the safest and most effective available treatments for maintenance use.

One of the most common uses of light therapy or phototherapy is to treat the skin condition called psoriasis.. Since this is an immune disorder, ultraviolet rays are used to suppress the immune reaction of the body and to suppress the skin inflammation that characterises psoriasis.. Common acne can also be treated with light therapy because certain UV rays are known to kill bacteria that cause acne. Whereas earlier sunlight exposure was thought to be an effective antidote to acne this was found to be unsafe due to the possible harm that extensive sun exposure can cause.. However, light therapy using super luminous LEDs is still able to control acne effectively in up to 90% of cases.. Light therapy is also useful for treating eczema, a skin conditions such as Polymorphous light eruption (PLE), Lichen Planus, where the skin breaks out in rashes, lesions and papules and even skin diseases such as Vitiligo or de-pigmentation. ...
Celluma (LED) Light Therapy. PAIN • ACNE • ANTI-AGING. What is Celluma? Celluma is unique and quite unlike any other low-level light therapy device available today. Based on NASA research, Celluma delivers blue, red and near-infrared light energy simultaneously to safely treat a wide variety of conditions. Each wavelength is absorbed by different molecules that act as a signaling mechanism for different cellular processes. For example, some reduce inflammation and some kill bacteria, while others enhance localized circulation. What is light therapy? Light Emitting Diode (LED) phototherapy is the application of light energy to tissue to obtain therapeutic benefits. The energy is used to improve cellular performance. Phototherapy is known for its healing and anti-inflammatory properties and has a variety of applications across many medical fields. Research has shown that phototherapy can: increase circulation, accelerate tissue repair, decrease wrinkles, decrease inflammation, improve skin ...

To observe the effect of red light phototherapy (RLPT) on radioactive dermatitis (RD) caused by radiotherapy in patients with head and neck cancer (HNC). Sixty patients with HNC admitted to our hospital were randomly divided into experimental group and control group, 30 patients in each group. The control group received routine daily care during radiotherapy treatment. In the experimental group, in addition to routine daily care during radiotherapy treatment, photon therapy apparatus RLPT was added, 10 min/time, 2 times/day, and lasted until the end of radiotherapy. The pain and conditions of the patients skin were assessed daily, and the skin pain and dermatitis grades of the two groups were compared. In terms of the reaction degree of RD, experimental group was mainly grade 0-2, and control group was mainly grade 2-3, with a significant difference (P | 0.05). In terms of skin pain, according to the pain records at week 2, 3, and 4, the pain degree increased with time. However, the score of wound pain

First a little science lesson: Our skin has the unique ability to absorb light and convert it to energy, which is great for regenerating cells and building new proteins. However, as we all know, the absorption of too much sunlight damages our skin.. Enter LED light therapy, which delivers the advantages of light absorption without the UV damaging rays.. LED light therapy is a noninvasive, anti-aging procedure that emits packets of light deep into the skins layers. It triggers cellular activity to allow the skin to heal and rejuvenate.. Unlike other procedures that accomplish this-namely laser and chemical peels-LED light therapy is painless and involves no downtime. It is ideal for clients of any age who want to improve the appearance of their skin and is safe for all skin types and colors. LED light therapy does not heat up the skin and therefore poses no risk of burns or thermal damage.. Clients using Accutane should discontinue product use at least six months before an LED light treatment. ...

Liverpool Womens Neonatal Unit takes care of more than 1,000 babies and their families every year. They provide care for babies born prematurely, with low weight or who have a medical condition that requires specialist treatment. Physiological jaundice is a normal condition of newborn and preterm babies as they need to break down the excess red blood cells that were required to transport oxygen before birth. If underlying conditions reduce the ability to remove the excess bilirubin created, the resulting jaundice can cause irreversible brain damage.. The treatment for jaundice is by phototherapy which breaks down the bilirubin in the body enabling it to be excreted. A BiliLux phototherapy lamp will effectively and swiftly reduce the bilirubin levels to normal. This will enable mother and baby to leave hospital earlier, which relieves pressure on families and promotes better bonding after birth. The Liverpool Womens Hospital has requested 2 BiliLux Phototherapy units for their expanding ...

Bright light (BL) has been shown to be effective in enhancing both cognitive and physical performances. Alterations in nighttime melatonin levels have also been observed. However, evaluations of light-induced changes in the preceding biochemical processes are absent. Therefore, the impact of a single morning BL exposure on sensorimotor and visuomotor performance, as well as tryptophan (trp) and trp metabolites, was evaluated in this study. In a crossover design, 33 healthy volunteers were randomly exposed to 30 min of | 150 lx at eye level (office light, OL) and 5000 lx at eye level (bright light, BL) of 6500 K in the morning hours. Trp, sulfatoxymelatonin (aMT6s), and kynurenine (kyn) courses over the morning hours were analyzed, and changes in sensori- and visuomotor measures were examined. Motoric performance increased in both setups, independent of light intensity. aMT6s and kyn decreased equally under both lighting conditions. Trp levels decreased from a mean (95% confidence interval) of 82.0 (77.2

Researchers have found that red light affects biochemicals on the cellular level to strengthen the mitochondria responsible for generating energy. This energy is called Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP). [efn_note] P, Avci, et al. (2013) Low-level laser (light) therapy (LLLT) in skin: stimulating, healing, restoring. Mar;32(1):41-52.[/efn_note]. An increase in ATP production means a cell has more energy and can therefore more effectively function to repair damage, contributing to the healing and renewal of problematic areas.. Unlike other treatments like laser and intense pulsed light (IPL) or chemical peels, Red Light Therapy only penetrates approximately 5 millimeters into the skin, directly stimulating cell regeneration without causing damage to the outer layer of skin.. Research-based evidence also indicates that with Red Light and Near Infrared Light Therapy, skin cells become more tolerant to stress, and treatments can reduce the buildup of free radicals which damage a cells DNA and cause ...

Objective: The study evaluated the efficacy of phototherapy and 20% albumin infusion to reduce total serum bilirubin (TSB) in neonates with severe hyperbilirubinemia. The primary outcome was a reduction of TSB at the end of treatment. The secondary outcomes were the need for exchange transfusion, inpatient mortality, neurological outcomes at discharge, and development outcomes at 12-months follow-up. Results: One hundred and eighteen neonates were randomly assigned to phototherapy and 20% albumin (n = 59) and phototherapy and saline (n = 69). The median age at admission was 5 (interquartile range (IQR) 3-6) days, and the median gestation was 36 (IQR 36-38) weeks. No significant differences were found in the change in TSB (Mann-Whitney U =609, p = 0.98) and rate of change in TSB per hour after treatment (Mann-Whitney U = 540, p = 0.39) between the two groups. There were no significant differences between the two groups in the proportion of participants who required exchange transfusion (χ2 (2) = 0.36, p
