Background and Objective: There are many kinds of photobiomodulation (PBM) on tumor cells whereas PBM induced oncogenic transformation has not been found. These will be discussed in view of the anti-cancer efficacy of PBM. Study Design/Materials and Methods: The biological information model of PBM (BIMP) will be used to study PBM on tumor cells. Results: The PBM on tumor cells includes cell proliferation, cell cycle modulation, cell adhesion, cell differentiation and so on. The PBM on small tumor tissue in vivo may include the inhibition or promotion of tumor growth. The PBM can be designed to play an important role in anti-cancer treatments in terms of BIMP. Conclusions and discussion: PBM on tumor cells may develop into a novel anti-cancer therapeutic approach.
