Disease relevance of Infrared Rays


High impact information on Infrared Rays

  • Cocaine use and death during heat waves [4].
  • Atropine applied by itself produced a monophasic heat wave in the cells, suggesting that its interactions with the receptor activate some intracellular metabolic pathways [5].
  • RESULTS: The frequency of oligohydramnios in normal term pregnancies was 17.5% during the heat wave that affected Paris in August 2003 [1].
  • METHODS AND PATIENTS: All the patients were admitted in critical condition during the heat wave in the summer of 1999 in Israel. Each was in deep coma with a measured core temperature of over 40 degrees C upon admission to the emergency department [6].
  • Labeled carcinoembryonic antigen antibodies excitable by infrared rays: a novel diagnostic method for micro cancers in the digestive tract [7].

Gene context of Infrared Rays

  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: ICG-sulfo-OSu labeled mouse anti-human carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) monoclonal antibody, a newly developed imaging system, and an infrared ray microscope were employed in this experiment [7].
  • We have developed an oral antioxidant, named AOA, which is produced from natural plants and seeds (e.g., soybean, sesame, wheat germ), treated by heating with far infrared rays (4-14 microns wavelength), brewed with Aspergillus oryzae, and lipophilized with similarly heated sesame oil [8].
