In this study brain glioma cells were injected into the brains of rats. Starting on the 5th day after inoculation, the rats were exposed to 915 MHz microwaves, either as continuous-wave or as pulse-modulated. The radiation was given for 7 hours per day, 5 days per week for 2-3 weeks. When the animal started to develop neurological signs of tumour growth, it was sacrificed and the brain examined.

All animals developed tumours. There was no difference in tumour size between the exposed animals and the controls.

Details of the SAR are not given. It is difficult to interpret a study where all animals, exposed and controls, develop brain tumours of significant size.
