Human mononuclear leukocytes were exposed to 2450 MHz microwaves pulse-modulated at 16 Hz or at 60 Hz, at specific absorption rates up to 4 mWml. Such exposures produced no detectable effects on leukocyte viability, or on unstimulated or mitogen-stimulated DNA synthesis or total protein synthesis. The data provided no evidence that exposure to pulse-modulated microwaves in more likely to alter human leukocyte function than is exposure to continuous waves at equivalent energy levels.
