OBJECTIVE: Discuss the effect degree and phase of microwave radiation on the hematopoietic system in rats, and to provide basis for human health life.
METHODS: Use the methods of blood cell analysis and Wright-Gimsa stain to analyse the peripheral blood cell and marrow smear of the different time (1d, 7d and 14d) Wistar rats that exposured by different radiation dose.
RESULTS: Compare with the untreated control group, various cell parameters of blood in the microwave radiation rats had different changes, and their marrow smear was obviously destroyed;especially the group treated with 200 mW/cm2 microwave exposure had more significant change at seven-day. For the 14d group,the other hematological parameters all return to control except WBC, LY#, MID# and N# increase,PLT and PCT remain lower.
CONCLUSION: Microwave radiation can influence hematological system of rats, and with the radiation dose increased, the effect is more significant.
