The Latest & Most Exciting
Clinical Trials For Red Light Therapy

Exciting news! Red Light therapy (aka Photobiomodulation) is becoming more & more popular in the scientific world!

There are over 4,000 clinical trials and thousands of scientists who dedicate themselves to studying Red and NIR light therapy. This is a direct sign of the significant effects this therapy is having in the medical world.

We’ve hand-picked 4 of the latest and most exciting clinical trials to share with you in our latest blog post: 

Is It Time to Consider Photobiomodulation As a Drug Equivalent?

Wow, what a title!

In this article Tiina Karu lists the many benefits photobiomodulation is having upon multiple ailments and questions why it is still not a part of mainstream medicine.

She has composed a list of ailments and clinical trials that have seen improvements in symptoms such as vitiligo, nerve repairment, oral mucositis in chemo patients, parkinson's disease and depression to name just a few. A must read!

Effect of Transcranial Low-Level Light Therapy on Patients with TBI

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is experienced by an estimated 69 million people every year.However, there are no treatments for this condition yet.

Transcranial LED therapy is a promising area of research, with potential to help various brain disorders where therapies are limited.” - Margaret Naeser, research professor of Neurology at Boston University School of Medicine.

In a recent clinical trial it was found near infrared light therapy is safe and has measurable effects in the brain. This study provides the first human evidence to date that light therapy engages neural substrates that play a role in the pathophysiologic factors of moderate TBI and also suggests a therapeutic response.

MRIs showed statistically significant differences in the integrity of myelin surrounding the neurons of patients treated with RLT versus those who were not. If further trials support these findings, light therapy could become the first widely-accepted treatment for this type of injury.

Optically Improved Mitochondrial Function Redeems Aged Human Visual Decline

A few minutes of looking into red light has a dramatic effect on preventing eyesight decline as we age, according to a new study published this week in The Journals of Gerontology.

The science works as the light stimulates the health of mitochondria, which are like batteries in our cells. It also helps prevent damage to mitochondria in the retina, which leads to declining eyesight.

In the following clinical trial, there was a 14% improvement in the ability to see colors, or cone color contrast sensitivity, for the entire two dozen participants.

Even more exciting, that in the participants over 40, ther improvement was by 22%!

Does photobiomodulation influence ageing?

Mitochondria play key roles in regulating the ageing process.

Recently, photobiomodulation has been shown to alter the course of ageing in the central nervous system, by improving the survival and function of neurons and reducing inflammation.

Some of the key advantages of photobiomodulation therapy relate to its safety and it can be delivered with commercially available light emitting devices at energies well within the human safety range.
