Abstract
Twenty-three out of forty-four adolescents affected by acute and progressive tuberculosis were administered a complex treatment based on the intravenous laser irradiation of blood. This treatment started 2 to 4 weeks after the beginning of chemotherapy. The efficiency of the treatment was assessed by clinical and laboratory criteria obtained after 1.5 to 2 months. It was found that the application of (lambda) equals 0.63 micrometers laser irradiation increased the therapeutic effect and stimulated the healing of the disease. Moreover, it enabled the achievement of a quiet course of tuberculosis with less pronounced residual changes in the lungs.
