In their transfer from in vitro culture to the human body, bioengineered cells and tissues experience extreme environmental stress. Similarly, many optical imaging methods can also cause cellular stress. In both cases, this stress has the potential to inhibit a variety of cellular functions and enhance cell death. Light treatment, however, might stop this problem from occurring.
