Effects of 940 nm light-emitting diode (led) on sciatic nerve regeneration in rats

" The LED phototherapy with 940 nm wavelength reduced the areas of edema, the number of mononuclear cells present in the inflammatory infiltration, and increased functional recovery scores at 7, 14 and 21 days. The results suggest that the use of phototherapy at 940 nm after nerve damage improves morphofunctional recovery and nerve regeneration."

When they examine histologically, they saw better organized myelin sheets with fewer areas of myelin debris, is interesting to note that myelin fiber has been theorized to be an optical fiber for biophotons (just like microtubules).
