  • Current Studies Seeking Participants

    This pilot study is a controlled, randomized study to determine the safety and effectiveness of laser therapy for the eradication of microorganisms in an endotracheal tube. Sixty subjects will be studied at two sites. All 60 subjects will be enrolled and randomized into one of two groups, 30 subjects (treatment group) will receive PDT (laser therapy) plus standard-of care and 30 subjects (control group) will receive only the standard-of-care for intubated subjects. Subjects must have been recently intubated orally with endotracheal tube (within 36 hours) and placed on a mechanical ventilator.
