Several authors reported on stimulation of wound healing in humans by laser light irradiations. As the active principle of this effect is almost unknown, animal experiments were done to analyze the formation of granulation tissue under the influence of red laser light and incoherent light at the same wavelength. For this purpose the back skin of rats was injured to implant plastic rings preventing the wound to epithelize from the edge. Our studies show that irradiated animals had formed granulation tissue up to 25 per cent plus compared to. non-treated rats. The influence of light irradiation on epithelization was examined on guinea pigs.
