GARCIA LOPEZ, Omar. Evaluation of the therapeutic effect of the FOTOTER-101 in patients with psoriasis. 2007-2008. Rev. Med. Electrón. [online]. 2011, vol.33, n.3, pp.264-270. ISSN 1684-1824.

The therapeutic methods in the psoriasis have changed according to the localization of the lesions, their seriousness, outbreak lasting, previous treatment and patients' age, but in fact we can not assure that any regime heals; all they do is to improve the skin manifestations. Because of that we wanted to compare the efficacy of the radiation emitted by the FOTOTER-101 as a photopuncture and acupuncture technique, looking for better results in its treatment, and a better life quality as a result. We applied a therapeutic clinical trial phase II in both groups, making a simple randomization without replacement. We formed two groups of patients (n= 55 for each group). The group A was treated with photopuncture and the group B with acupuncture. Both groups were evaluated every week throughout the 3 four-weeks stages of treatment, and all of the patients were followed up a month after the treatment, with fortnightly evaluations. Both group showed a satisfactory evolution, and an improvement at the end of the 4th week of treatment, reaching the whitening and disappearance of the pruritus at the end of the 8th week. So, we showed that both therapies have similar results according to their therapeutic effect.
