Abstract
Low-intensity laser irradiation (LILI) is effectively used in clinical practice but the mechanisms of its stimulating action are still far from being understood completely and considered in the scientific literature only hypothetically. The main effects of LILI proved both in clinics and in experiments are bactericidal effect, vasodilatation, improved microcirculation, formation and growth of new microvessels, acceleration of wound healing, relieving of pain syndrome. We put forward a free radical conception underlying these effects. In this paper the experimental evidences of this conception is considered.
