Female CD-1 mice immunized against the bacterium Streptococcus pneumoniae type III were exposed to 9-GHz pulsed microwaves (pulse repetition rate 970-1.000, pulse width 1.0 micro seconds, peak power 1 W/cm2) at an average incident power density of 1 mW/ (calculated SAR = 0.47 W/kg) for 2 h per day for 5 days. Circulating antibody titers for the microwave-exposed animals were not significantly different from those of the sham-irradiated animals, and there were no differences in any of the hematological parameters analyzed, indicating that 9-GHz pulsed microwaves at 1 mW/ do not alter the immune response of mice immunized against S pneumoniae.
