MillenbaughAbstractThe growing prevalence of biofilm-associated multi-drug resistant (MDR) bacteria necessitates the innovation of non-traditional approaches to improve the effectiveness of mainstay antibiotics. Here, we evaluated the use of gold nanoparticle (GNP)-targeted pulsed laser therapy to enhance antibiotic efficacy against in vitro methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and MDR Pseudomonas aeruginosa biofilms. Treatment with ant...

Genitourinary syndrome of menopause (GSM) include genital symptoms of dryness, burning, irritation, but also sexual symptoms of lack of lubrication, discomfort or pain, and impaired function, as well as urinary symptoms of urgency, dysuria and recurrent urinary tract infections. Reported prevalence rates of vaginal dryness due to vulvovaginal atrophy (VVA) or GSM vary, but it is estimated that approximately 15% of premenopausal and up to 57% of postmenopausal women experience this condition. Local vaginal estrogen administration is the treatment of choice for VVA atrophy, although lacking long time efficacy and safety.

Noninvasive treatment is recommended as first line for urinary incontinence (UI) in women. However, surgical procedures are more likely to be implemented to cure UI but are associated with more adverse events. Less invasive operative mesh techniques are relatively effective, but not immune to complications such as bleeding, bladder perforation, urethral injury, infection, and the retention requiring mesh resection. In patients for whom the risks of anesthesia and surgery are too high, a minimally invasive approach is recommended and further research is needed in terms of more compliant, less invasive and low-cost methods f...

Background: Genitourinary Syndrome of Menopause (GSM) is one of the important global health concerns due to its impact on quality of life. The intra-vaginal laser therapy has been used for treatment of GSM. The erbium in yttrium aluminum-garnet crystal or Er:YAG vaginal laser (VEL) induce the regenerative process of the vaginal mucosa.

AbstractThis pilot, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study is aimed at evaluating the effectiveness of low-level laser therapy (LLLT) as a complementary treatment to complete decongestive therapy (CDT) treating lymphedema among breast cancer patients for 12  months post-intervention. Study population was breast cancer patients who were diagnosed and referred to lymphedema clinic for CDT. Participants (n = 22) were randomized and assigned into either an active laser intervention group or an inactive laser placebo-control group. Active LLLT was administered to participants twice a week at the b...

In this study, the therapeutic effect of 808  nm laser therapy was investigated on B16-F10 melanoma tumor growth and tumor-bearing mice survival time. In addition, as laser can destroy melanin as the main cause of melanoma radioresistance, the effect of laser administration to enhance radiation therapy efficacy at B16-F10 cancer cells was eva luated in vitro and in vivo. Laser therapy (1 W/cm2 × 4 min) could cause significant (P
