Abstract:

For 25 months 100 male SPF rats were exposed to pulsed 2450-MHz circularly polarized microwaves at an average power density of 0.48 mWsq cm. Another 100 rats served as sham-exposed controls. This report summarizes the results of the eight previous volumes which reported on measurements of 155 parameters. For most of the parameters no statistical difference was found between the exposed and sham-exposed groups. This report discusses a few end-points that were statistically different.
