ID Number 1004
Study Type In Vitro
Model 2450 MHz (CW) exposure to CHO cells and analysis of growth and survival

CHO cells were heated either with 2450 MHz microwaves or to a comparable temperature using non-MW conventional heating. Effects on survival were similar. Other studies by Dethlefsen showed that hyperthermia treatment itself could lower the X-ray doses necessary for kill of cancer cells as a treatment in experimental animal models.
