Abstract
At the Department of Biomedical Engineering of Drexel University, the study of the reactivity of human white blood cells (leukocytes) had been undertaken originally for biocompatibility measurements. Acute (jolymorphonuclear) and chronic (mononuclear) inflammatory white blood cells (leukocytes) have been studied for their response to chemoattractant and chemorepellant implantable materials. Further experiments have lead to the enhancement and retardation of this cytotaxis via electromagnetic fields. These techniques are now being adapted to study the photonic effects of leukocytes.
