Theralase study points to cancer breakthrough2012-04-12
Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a potential treatment regime for a number of conditions. It involves introducing particular light-sensitive chemical species into biological systems, inducing them to localize at the point of interest, and then irradiating them with a light source.
It holds particular promise as a treatment to combat certain cancers, and the latest results from trials using a system developed by Ontario-based Theralase have shown that PDT was able to completely destroy subcutaneous colon cancer tumors in a mouse model. Four weeks after treatment, the mice remained free of cancer.

Virginia Tech reports on a new cancer therapy that appears promising in pre-clinical trials. The research team, led by professors in chemistry and in biological sciences, along with Theralase Technologies, a manufacturer of medical laser devices, has developed a way to eradicate tumors without the harmful side effects of chemotherapy, radiation or a surgeon's scalpel.
Theralase heals at the speed of light2010-09-07
Bio Tuesdays's interviews Roger Dumoulin-White about his company Theralase and their breakthrough technology. Roger's father, a jeweller in Tillsonburg, ON, showed his son a prototype laser system that healed tissue.
"I was pretty sceptical," says Mr. Dumoulin-White. "It was something my father came across while traveling in Europe. He also gave me an anecdotal study translated from Flemish that showed using 905 nanometre light, which is invisible laser light, increased cellular mitosis of fibroblasts by 100%."
Therapeutic Choices for Rehabilitation2010-06-15
Dr. Rhonda Mostyn, Clinic Director at Theralase, was published in the Canadian Chiropractic magazine for her article attesting the the benefits and value of integrating therapeutic laser into a clinical setting. The article pushes practitioners to exercise due diligence before forming opinions on emerging technologies and suggests ways of becoming more 'informed' about therapeutic modalities like laser.
