If you have ever covered a flashlight with your hand and seen the red light that still comes through, then you have seen light in the therapeutic window -- that magic wavelength that is not absorbed or reflected away by tissue. Scientists believe that they can use light at that wavelength to signal manmade molecules to release drugs at disease sites in the body.
