      This study investigated the treatment of acute lung injury by low level laser therapy (LLLT). Six hours after lipopolysaccharide instillation, animals were irradiated with laser at 660 nm and radiant exposure of 10 J/cm2 (in the mid axillary line, bilaterally). Our results show that a single early LLLT application not only improved inflammatory infiltrate (for at least one week) and cytokines secretion, but also did not affect lung mechanics in later follow-up.
