The impact of optical radiation of femtosecond duration on human glial cells


The paper presents the results of the studies of influence of optical radiation with wavelengths of 520 and 780 nm on human glial cells (U251) at the range of exposure times ∼ 1-15 min. It was found that after the first minute of irradiation at the wavelength of 780 nm, the relative number of apoptotic cells significantly increased. The result corroborates the concept of biological hazard of optical radiation for tumor cells, and suggests that the approach has a great potential in clinical application for the treatment of human glioma.
