Monitoring of relative variations in some hematological parameters and liver enzymes for albino rats due to 50Hz-4kV/m electric field exposures at different exposure periods is studied. Six groups of animals are used; group A considered as sham group that housed at normal environmental conditions and didn’t receive any treatments. The other five groups B, C, D, E and F exposed to electric fields for different exposure periods 5, 10, 15, 20, 30 days respectively. Blood samples are collected immediately after sacrificing from each animal and complete blood count CBC and liver enzymes are examined. The results of RBCs evaluations of exposed groups indicated slight decrease but highly correlated to exposure time. Whereas, the data of WBCs evaluations showed insignificant and uncorrelated variations compared to unexposed group A. The liver enzymes (SGOT, SGPT) data figured increasing and highly correlation to exposure times compared to group A. In conclusion, exposure to ELF EMF is ambiguous and has subtle hazardous effect and the need of future works to elucidate any health consequences may be attributed to the exposure of such fields. Key words: Electric field, RBCs, hematology, CBC, Liver.
