Abstract
Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT) has been implicated to stimulate tissue, promoting healing and reducing pain. One of the potential pathways stimulated by LLLT relates to the electron transport chain, where photon quantum energy can induce a change in the biochemical reactions within the cell. The aim of this study is to assess the feasibility to exploit light additionally as a diagnostic tool to determine tissue physiological states, particularly in quantifying the changes in redox states of Cytochrome C as a result of induced LLLT biochemical reactions.
