Summary
B.I.Stepanov Institute of Physics of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus offers consumers phototherapeutic apparatuses «LOTOS» for the treatment of infectious and inflammatory diseases of newborns and children in the first months of life using methods of antibacterial photodynamic therapy and photoregulatory therapy under a manufacturing agreement and is looking for partners interested in a distribution services agreement.
Description
B.I.Stepanov Institute of Physics of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus manufactures phototherapeutic apparatuses «LOTOS» designed for the treatment of infectious and inflammatory diseases of newborns and children of the first months of life using methods of antibacterial photodynamic therapy and photoregulatory therapy.

Due to its wide functionality, «LOTOS» apparatus can be used for the treatment of diseases of various etiologies, which can hardly be treated with medication, by affecting the lesions with a size of 50x50 mm (using laser module). Remote emitters can be used for hard-to-reach lesions (ears, etc.).

Distinctive features of the phototherapeutic apparatus «LOTOS» are:
* opportunity of application of methods of antibacterial photodynamic therapy with photosensitizers used in clinical practice and the method of photoregulatory therapy;
* opportunity of a significant increase of biological activity and therapeutic effect of radiation due to the combined treatment of the lesions with polarized radiation of purple and red spectrum regions during photoregulatory therapy;
* opportunity of discrete regulation of laser radiation parameters;
* lack of resistance in pathogenic microflora to the damaging effects of reactive oxygen species generated by a triplet-excited sensitizer, as well as the availability of drugs used as photosensitizers;
* high efficiency of sensitized destruction of pathogenic microflora due to the formation of complexes of the sensitizer drug with the protein structures of microbial cells, which are the primary targets of reactive oxygen species, as well as a high quantum yield of singlet oxygen generation by medications.

Advantages and Innovations
Phototherapeutic apparatus «LOTOS» has no analogues in the countries of the Commonwealth of Independent States.

The methods of photodynamic therapy make it possible to shorten the duration of treatment, increase the frequency of complete cure, and partially abandon the use of foreign expensive drugs, including those based on heavy metals.
