Microwaves (MW) from cellular phones may affect biological systems by increasing free radicals, which may enhance lipid peroxidation (LP), and by changing the antioxidative activities of the liver, thus leading to oxidative damage. Caffeic acid phenethyl ester (CAPE), an active component of propolis extract, exhibits antioxidant properties and several studies suggest that supplementation with antioxidant can influence MW induced hepatotoxicity. The present study was designed to determine the effects of MW on the liver oxidant/antioxidant system, and the possible protective effects of CAPE on liver toxicity, induced by MW.
