Effects of EQR (emission from quartz resonance) irradiation on disease models in mice and rats were determined in terms of physical stamina, tumor growth and inflammation changes. Forced swimming tests for rats showed that the EQR irradiation had no effect on their immobile time in the water. A rotating rod test for food-restricted rats revealed that the EQR irradiation prolonged the time in which they did not drop from the rotating rod. The EQR irradiation had a strong tendency to suppress proliferation of sarcoma 180 tumor cells in BDF1 mice. The irradiation markedly inhibited carrageenin-induced foot edema in rats. For an adjuvant arthritic model in rats, the irradiation also inhibited swelling of the fore paws, iridocyclitis, ear nodules and balanitis, although it had no effects on swelling of inflammatory hindpaws and flexion pain of the hindpaw ankle. The authors postulate that the above-described effects arise because the EQR wave affects the inflammation system, i.e. the immune system in a wide sense.
