The influence of microwave irradiation on the activity of gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase (GGT) induced by hydrocortisone (HC) in the liver of rats was investigated. Animals were subjected to microwave irradiation (frequency 53.57 GHz, power density 10 mW/cm2 and 1 mW/cm2) during and after hydrocortisone (HC) treatment (20 mg/kg for 60 days).

The results indicate that microwave radiation may block an inducible effect of HC on GGT activity in the liver of rats. This effect depends on the power density of millimetre microwaves.
