|Additional info||Heat was applied by means of a 45 mm active length coaxial probe fed through a coaxial cable from a 100 W microwave generator. The rectal temperature was maintained between 42.9°C and 43.2°C. For more details on set-up and exposure parameters please see the reference article.|
No parameters are specified for this exposure.
A major peak of blood glucose concentration was found 8 hours after heat treatment, and a second minor peak was measured 14-17 hours after heat treatment. These data indicate that localized microwave hyperthermia affects the host systemically.
