Near-infrared photoimmunotherapy uses an antibody–photoabsorber conjugate that binds to cancer cells. When near-infrared light is applied, the cells swell and then burst, causing the cancer cell to die. Photoimmunotherapy is in clinical trials in patients with inoperable tumors.

Looks promising? The wrongly called 'alternative medicine' world has been proposing its use for cancer for a long time now. Yet, now, after the huge failure of chemotherapy and radiotherapy, which the people who actually know about health could know it was going to be a failure since it was just in paper, is that finally they're getting open to trying these types of therapies.

Apollo Contestants says:

what about infrared light on breast tissue without taking the conjugate? sounds like it might be of use in general. i know infra red light helps build collagen and rejuvenates skin.
