Abstract This study was designed to investigate the effect of the He-Ne laser (continuous wave, lambda = 632.8 nm, 8.5 mW in power) irradiation on human erythrocyte deformability. Blood samples were obtained from hematologically normal adult donors by venipuncture. Red cells were washed and adjusted to 30\% Ht with 0.9\% NaCl solution (pH 7.00). Red cell solution samples were assigned to three groups. Each sample was divided into seven 3-ml working aliquots. The aliquots in Group I were irradiated for 0 (control), 1, 3, 5, 10, 15, and 30 min within 2 hr after sampling. The aliquots in Group 2 and Group 3 were stored at 5 degrees C for 24 and 36 hr, respectively, and received similar irradiations after 12 hr (in both groups), 24 hr (in Group 2), and 36 hr (in Group 3) from sampling. Red cell deformability was measured by the Nuclepore filter filtration and presented as the filter filtration rate (FFR). The deformability shown as FFR was unchanged in Group 1 (fresh cell group) from the control value, but improved significantly in Groups 2 and 3 (damaged cell groups) after the irradiation. These results suggested that the irradiation of low-powered He-Ne lasers improved cytoskeletal protein activities in damaged erythrocytes.
