The Effect of Light Therapy on Post-Surgical Pain

Surgical pain may require significant amount of opioids. This is a serious medical problem, especially in the elderly. New methods are needed to help control surgical pain. This study inve...

Effects of Light Treatment During Sleep on Young Men

This study will determine if green light exposure during sleep is effective in reducing mild depression symptoms in young men.

Light Exposure to Treat Sleep Disruption in Older People

The purpose of this study is to test whether shifts in the timing of the biological clock to a later hour (phase delay shifts of the human circadian system) can be produced in response to ...

Systematically Assessing Effects of Colored Light on Humans With a Multi-modal Approach (Substudy 5 of 7)

NOTE: This is the fifth of in total 7 sub-studies related to the Ethics Committee of the Canton of Bern Ref. No. KEK-BE 2016-00674. This sub-study includes 50 participants and 8 arms, in t...

Improved cognitive morning performance in healthy older adults following blue-enriched light exposure on the previous evening.

Exposure to light can have acute alerting and circadian phase-shifting effects. This study investigated the effects of evening exposure to blue-enriched polychromatic white (BEL) vs. polychromatic whi...

Dim Light Exposure and Myopia in Children.

Experimental myopia in animal models suggests that bright light can influence refractive error and prevent myopia. Additionally, animal research indicates activation of rod pathways and circadian rhyt...

Exposure to excessive blue LED light damages retinal pigment epithelium and photoreceptors of pigmented mice.

To determine the characteristics of the damages of the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) and photoreceptors of pigmented mice induced by exposure to blue light emitting diode (LED) light, and to determ...

The influence of light sources on sunitinib measurements with photoisomerization.

Sunitinib is an orally administered tyrosine kinase inhibitor. Therapeutic drug monitoring is an important component of the follow-up of patients because of high interpatient variability in the pharma...

No effect of artificial light of different colors on commuting Daubenton's bats (Myotis daubentonii) in a choice experiment.

Progressive illumination at night poses an increasing threat to species worldwide. Light at night is particularly problematic for bats as most species are nocturnal and often cross relatively large di...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Screens which absorb the energy in the x-ray beam that has penetrated the patient and convert this energy into a light pattern which has as nearly as possible the same information as the original x-ray beam. The more light a screen produces for a given input of x-radiation, the less x-ray exposure and thus shorter exposure time are needed to expose the film. In most film-screen systems, the film is sandwiched between two screens in a cassette so that the emulsion on each side is exposed to the light from its contiguous screen.

Treatment of disease by exposure to light, especially by variously concentrated light rays or specific wavelengths.

Light sources used to activate polymerization light-cured orthodontic adhesives (DENTAL CEMENTS). Degree of cure and bond strength depends on exposure time, wavelength, and intensity of the curing light.

The hardening or polymerization of bonding agents (DENTAL CEMENTS) via exposure to light.

Disorders associated with acute or chronic exposure to compounds containing ARSENIC (ARSENICALS) which may be fatal. Acute oral ingestion is associated with gastrointestinal symptoms and an encephalopathy which may manifest as SEIZURES, mental status changes, and COMA. Chronic exposure is associated with mucosal irritation, desquamating rash, myalgias, peripheral neuropathy, and white transverse (Mees) lines in the fingernails.
