Biography/History:
Raj Nair is Professor of Oral Medicine/Oral Oncology, Oral Pathology and Human Diseases at Griffith University, Gold Coast, Australia. He has received his Oral Medicine training from Harvard University, USA and University of London, England, UK. He has published in the field of Oral Medicine, Pathology, Microbiology and Immunology and presented at numerous international conferences. Professor René-Jean Bensadoun is a Radiation Oncologist and Professor of Oncology-Radiotherapy. He currently heads the Nice High Energy Centre (private structure of radiotherapy and Supportive Care). Professor Bensadoun has published over 220 articles in peer-reviewed journals, and authored two books published in the US on the use of low-energy laser in cancer.
Summary:
Light from low level laser therapy, through a process called photobiomodulation (PBM), has been in existence in supportive care in cancer, in particular in the management of oral mucositis (OM) in patients undergoing chemotherapy, radiation therapy and haematopoietic stem cell transplantation. In this book the authors attempt to portray the current status of the supportive care interventions that are possible with PBM using low level laser therapy (LLLT) in patients undergoing cancer treatment for solid tumours, harmatological malignancies, and head and neck cancers.
