In this review, we summarize a part of our research concerning photobiostimulative effects on cardiomyocytes, sperm cells, and nerve cells. We concentrate on results demonstrating that photobiostimulation can be described by the Arndt-Schultz (A.S.) curve. Results monitoring an increase in reactive oxygen species (ROS) concentration following visible light irradiation describe the ascending part of the A.S. curve, whereas those that describe the antioxidant role of photobiostimulation represent the descending part of the curve.
