There are several studies in the literature regarding the clinical efficacy of Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT), however the very few randomized, double blind clinical trials available present contrasting views. The purpose of this trial
Summary: Like COX inhibitors (like ibuprofen), red LED’s (light-emitting diodes) with the wavelength of 635 nanometers (nm) inhibited inflammatory markers, proving to be anti-inflammatory. Unlike COX inhibitors, red LED’s decreased reactive oxygen species (ROS), which high levels of ROS is associated to higher cellular damage. Abstract: Background and Objectives Inhibition of cyclooxygenase (COX) and prostaglandin

Ferritin for the Clinician

Summary: Elevated serum ferritin (a form of iron) levels are associated with coronary artery disease, malignancy, and poor stem cell transportation. It is also involved in conditions like neurodegenerative disorders, sideroblastic anemia, and hemophagocytic syndrome. Ferritin is an acute-phase reactant for the inflammatory response. Abstract: Ferritin, a major iron storage protein, is essential to iron
