AMA PRA Category 1 CME Credits: 3.00 MAX

ACCME Accreditation Statement

Presenter Disclosures

Educational Needs The purpose of this session is to present and discuss the latest findings on basic mechanisms of Photobiomodulation (PBM), and pre-clinical and clinical investigations on the critical parameters, mechanisms, and effectiveness of Photobiomodulation Therapy (PBMT) for a broad range of clinical applications. Light and its photonic effects and photo-medicine in general have gained recognition as an area of innovative and novel research with significant clinical implications.

Participants Scientists, engineers, medical practitioners, individuals in industry and other health care professionals involved in biomedical applications of light are invited to participate in these sessions.

Background Requirements Participants should have an understanding of light interaction with biological tissues and basic and clinical research.

Instructional Content/Expected Learning Objectives This session will provide the latest data on basic science and pre-clinical experiments in PBM and clinical use of PBMT for a wide spectrum of applications. The participants will increase their knowledge on the state-of-the-art of PBM basic science and PBMT clinical potential.

"Hot topics"

  • Photobiomodulation therapy for the management of oral mucositis in cancer patients.
  • Photobiomodulation may inhibit tumor growth by stimulating the immune response.
  • Presence of opsins and cryptochromnes in human skin may be photobiomodulation mediators.
  • A novel red-emitting quantum dot LED (QLED) source for photobiomodulation applications.
