In this paper, the bio-effect qigong waiqi on the propagation of diploid lung fibroblast was observed. The growth curve of the cell population was obtained from 4 experiments and it showed an increase of 20-59% in the growth rate. In two experiments of the DNA synthesis, when 3H-TdR was added into the nutrient medium, the survey of 3H-TdR counts per minute suggested that qigong waiqi could not promote DNA synthesis of cell population. Because the materials obtained from these experiments were not enough, so exact conclusion can't be made until the further investigation and exploration were done. Even if the conditions of experimental system were the same, the bio-effect of qigong waiqi on propagation of cell population appeared some instability. Besides variable factors in the experimental system, the main cause my be related to the quality and quantity of the qigong waiqi.
