The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of the red light (630 nm) upon reactive oxygen species production by neutrophils in vitro. Blood samples were used for the study. The flow cytometry method was used for estimation of hydrogen peroxide production. A statistically significant decrease of reactive oxygen species production by neutrophils was observed. The level of the decrease varied and it was dependent on the kind of spectrum of applied signals and different levels of energy light.
