Abstract
Photobiomodulation, once called biostimulation, has been studied as the mechanism of low intensity laser therapy since 1982, and it has been studied in China since 1987. Chinese therapeutic applications began in low intensity laser acupuncture in 1970s, in intravascular low intensity laser therapy in 1990s, in endonasal low intensity laser therapy in 1998, in high intensity laser acupuncture in 2000, and in laser surgery in 2001. As Chinese therapeutic applications of photobiomodulation were the most widely in the world, the research of photobiomodulation and its therapeutic applications was very progressive in China. Although the specific pathways mediating photobiomodulation were put forward and studied by foreign experts such as Karu et al, the non-specific pathways were put forward for the first time and were also studied very deeply by Chinese experts such as Liu TCY et al. Moreover, basic research of intravascular low intensity laser therapy, such as in vitro blood research and animal model research, was also very progressive in China.
