Abstract
Use of LLLT for 42 patients with an autoimmune thyroiditis has shown that the helper function of lymphocytes has decreased, the suppressive activity has increased, the quantity of B-lymphocytes has decreased and the immunoregulative index has been normalized. The effect of LLLT application was active about 4 months in 78 percent of the patients. Soft semiconductor laser was used. The radiation was in the IR range of spectrum, wavelength - 890 nm. The technique included cutaneous irradiation of the thymus projection zones, vascular junction and thyroid gland. The total doze was made 2.42 J/cm2.
