Title Study of the embryotropic effects of electrostatic pulse fields
Original title Sledování embryotropního účinku elektrostatického pulsního pole [in Czech]
Bibliographic information Dec. 1980, Vol.32, No.10, p.334-338. 19 ref.
Abstract Experiments with pregnant mice exposed from days 1-17 of gestation to electrostatic pulse fields (amplitude 1000V, field gradient 285V/cm, pulse band 10µs, repeat frequency 300Hz). Variables studied: course of pregnancy, number of dead foetuses, condition of placenta and foetal membranes, size and weight of mature foetuses, and status of internal organs. It was found that electrostatic pulse fields have a harmful effect on embryo development, especially during the early stages.
