dc.description.abstract An alternative to traditional treatment modalities for diabetic ulcers is low-level laser therapy (LLLT). A number of published studies demonstrate the beneficial effects of LLLT (Ribeiro et al, 2002), although several other studies also exist which indicate results to the contrary (Malm and Lundeberg, 1991; Loevschall and Arenholt-Bindslev, 1994). Further work focusing on cellular and molecular mechanisms of responses to laser irradiation is required to establish LLLT as a reliable, safe and inexpensive treatment modality. This article reviews LLLT as a treatment modality for diabetic ulcers. en_US
