sensitized photoreceptors, called chromophores that are part of the cellular pathways by regulating components of the respiratory chain (Cytochrome C oxidase and NADH dehydrogenase), changing its redox potential and promoting enzyme activation or inhibition (29).
improves cutaneous wound healing in an animal model of type II Diabetes.
Secondary reactions of photobiomodulation
involved a cellular signaling pathway, which involves the cell between the photoacceptor and a nucleus [28, 29].

Early Class III lasers had very low power output, leading to their being called "low level" lasers or "cold lasers." The effects of both Class III lasers and the more recent, higher-powered Class IV therapeutic lasers are referred to as photobiomodulation
, intended to denote the changes caused by the lasers at a cellular level.
The company is being recognized for their work on the LT-300, a photobiomodulation
(PBM) device that will be used to treat age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
