The point of the paper is to focus on the value of a particular RNA component that appears to regulate neuronal growth in the stem cell. The more mature cells in the brain, the better protection against degeneration was seen. Our research partners at Durham Univ. are keen to study the effects of photobiomodulation on Micro-RNA behavior and we are actively fund raising for to support these studies. Please consider helping us with this effort with a tax deductible donation to the QMF research fund.
The current efforts we've undertaken show that photobiomodulation has positive effects on mitochondria and other cellular components associated with neuronal health and resistance to damage. Our hope is that we can further clarify the specific mechanisms down to the most basic level in order to optimize the treatment models we can then develop for a wide range of neurodegenerative and neuropsychiatric conditions.
We can see this is an important aspect of how we may be able to intervene in the post-COVID long hauler syndromes that are emerging now, especially in neurology and psychiatry. It may be that targeted dosing of this treatment can bring about substantial improvement in patients now struggling just to survive the day.
