The therapeutic properties of light have been known for thousands of years, but photodynamic therapy (PDT) was only developed in the last century. Currently, PDT is in clinical trials for the oncology-the treatment of head and neck, brain, lung, pancreas, abdominal cavity, breast, prostate, and skin cancer. Advantages of the light-based...

Objective: The macroscopic singlet oxygen (MSO) model for quantifying the light-induced singlet oxygen ($^{1}O_{2}$) always contain a set of nonlinear dynamic equations and therefore are generally difficult to be applied. This work was devoted to analyze and simplify this dynamic model. Methods: Firstly, the nonlinearity of the MSO model was...

Anti-fungal blue light (ABL) therapies are based on the photochemical reaction of endogenous photosensitizer (PS) in fungal cells. Knowing the spectral sensitivity of these cells for the ability to generate singlet oxygen is thus important to determine the most effective wavelength of such light therapies, and thereby to design ABL...

Objective: The goal of this study is to investigate the efficacy, safety, and mechanism of ABL for inactivating Candida albicans (C. albicans), and to determine the best wavelength for treating candida infected disease, by experimental measurements and dynamic modeling. Methods: The changes in reactive oxygen species (ROS) in C. albicans and...

Light therapies can be used to treat fungal infections. A general mechanism is attributed to the generation of cytotoxic reactive oxygen species (ROS) due to light stimulation. The effectiveness of these therapies has been widely studied in the literature via conducting biological experiments, where fungi are exposed to light with various...

Wrist pain is a common complaint. In the Netherlands the prevalence of hand and wrist complaints is estimated at 125 per 1000 persons. Wrist pain can occur suddenly due to traumatic accidents such as a fall but can also be developed more slowly over a long period of time, leading to chronic pain. The effects of wrist pain on people can be...

Many professionals suffer from regular pain in the joints as a result of their work. In such cases, traditional light therapy, for example-Infrared light could be beneficial by enhancing blood circulation deep in the skin. Many of joint pain sufferers have used an Infrared lamp to relieve their pain after work at home. They are satisfied with...
