Dear Don:   I know you are in possession of a number of studies translated into English from Russian.  If this is one of the translated studies, would you please let me know?  


The fact that rat and guinea pig responses ae reported as "different" is not surprising to me at all considering guinea pigs produce cortisol -- same as humans -- and mice and rats produce corticortoids ( as I have mentioned in the past and I also have a statement on file from the journal "Nature" stating that guinea pigs are closer to humans than rodents.  Need to backup and transfer data from another computer in order to copy and forward the link ). 


Thanks and take care  -  Joanne

[Nature of the changes in the morphofunctional and cytochemical indices of blood leukocytes as affected by low-intensity microwaves]

[Article in Russian]
Rudnev MI, Gonchar IM.

A study was made of morphological composition of blood leukocytes, phagocytic activity, glycogen and alkaline phosphatase content of neutrophils of animals exposed to microwaves of low intensity (1-500 mu W/cm2) generated continuously (2375 MHz) and by impulses (9400 MHz). The direction of the change in these indices and rate of the postirradiation recovery was shown to depend upon intensity and duration (30-120 days) of exposure. The response of albino rats and guinea pigs to the effect of microwaves was different. The effect of microwaves of the intensities under study on the mammalian organism was assessed.
