In the course of an experimental morphological study, the regularities of morphological changes in the сentral and peripheral organs of the immune system were established when the body was exposed to an alternating electromagnetic field of industrial frequency. After 7-day irradiation of animals, an almost two-fold increase in the area of the ventro-dorsal projection of the thymus was revealed with a decrease in the relative area of the cortex by one third. Morphological changes in the lymph nodes concerned both external parameters and internal structures. After 14 days of irradiation, the organs of immunogenesis acquired resistance to the effects of the electromagnetic field while maintaining a high proliferative activity of lymphoid tissue.
