Abstract

Near-infrared laser therapy (NIRLT) as a transcranial laser therapy (TLT) is currently being investigated as a neuroreparatory and neuroprotective treatment for acute ischemic stroke patients in a pivotal phase III trial (NEST-3). In this review we cover the theoretical background, experimental studies, translational research and the clinical trial program.
