Basic Study

Basic studies on microwave irradiation for healthy animals and animals with cancers

A number of animals, as listed below, were placed one at a time in between two microwave generator units, and microwaves were irradiated on the entire body for 5 seconds at 3-second intervals, three times in total.  A general blood test, serum smear image, serum biochemical test and urine test were performed to observe the changes in components over time at six hours, 24 hours and one week after the irradiation.
     The results showed no significant differences except for a change in platelets. The table below shows the changes in platelets with time in all cases and in tumor-bearing animals only.  When compared with the results for all the cases, the platelets in tumor-bearing animals showed a significant tendency to increase subsequent to microwave irradiation.
