Abstract:

Research conducted has involved an investigation of the effects of electromagnetic pulsed fields EMP on the Dutch rabbit as well as in vitro study of electric field effects on bilayer lipid membranes BLM. The object of the research is to determine the in vivo effects of EMP exposure and to develop model systems to investigate the basic mechanisms of interaction. Since extensive data on the biological effects of another type of electromagnetic stressor, namely microwave radiation, has been obtained in this laboratory and elsewhere, the effects of EMP exposure will be compared to microwave exposure effects using similar end-points.
