Abstract

The action of the LFPEF seems bound to an effect on the cellular membrane and especially on the processes regulating the Ca** plus ** plus transport. Recent in vitro experiments have shown that the signal we used so enhances the effect of phytohemagglutinin on the peripheral lymphocytes of chronic lymphocytic leukemia as to more than double the stimulation index. The energy input into the system seems to be cell-signal specific. According to these observations it is easy to understand how different signals applied to the same pathology can promote healing in different ways. The cellular target of the various signals may not be the same. The following results show how non-union healing is characterized by the appearance of mainly periosteal bone callus in our conditions.
