Paper Abstract

We previously described the influence of low-level laser therapy (LLLT) on the primary fibroblast ATCC CRL1471 CCD-19SK passage 7 in culture, metabolic changes and statistical significance absorption of 3[H]Hydroxyproline after 2 irradiations (12 hour intervals) with Ar:DYE Laser, 633 nm wavelength, output power 38 mw, spot size 3.5 cm, power density 4 mw/cm2, energy density plus or minus 2 J/cm2. The aim of this work is to investigate, by using the same procedure, the behavior of the confluence monolayer fibroblasts culture when a central scratch of 0.4 - 1 mm and 2 irradiations is performed, by means of the study of the colony formation, haptotaxis (direction) and chemotaxis- chemokinesis (movement). The results indicate that all these phenomena appear sooner in the LLLT cultures than in non-treated cultures. Thus we can confirm that LLLT induces fibroblast biological effects.
