DETAILS * Idiopathic environmental intolerance attributed to electromagnetic fields (IEI-EMF) and electrosensibility (ES) - are they connected? med./biol.
Koteles F, Szemerszky R, Gubanyi M, Kormendi J, Szekrenyesi C, Lloyd R, Molnar L, Drozdovszky O, Bardos G (2013), Int J Hyg Environ Health 216 (3): 362 - 370
Aim: To study simultaneously the magnetic field detection ability and symptoms reported by people with idiopathic environmental intolerance attributed to electromagnetic fields (IEI-EMF). It was hypothesized that
1) people with IEI-EMF are able to detect a 50 Hz, 0.5 mT magnetic field to a given extent,
2) people with IEI-EMF adopt a lower decision criterion when deciding about the presence of the magnetic field,
3) people with IEI-EMF show an increased sympathetic activity during exposure,
4) people with IEI-EMF experience more unpleasant symptoms than the control group, and
5) some of these symptoms can be explained by previous expectations.
In addition, a relationship between IEI-EMF and the personality characteristics of somatosensory amplification and modern health worries was hypothesized.
Endpoints: hypersensitivity/subjective complaints (subjective complaints; magnetic field perception; somatosensory amplification; modern health worries; anxiety; expectations of unpleasant symptoms )
Exposure: 50 Hz, magnetic field, 50/60 Hz (AC)
* Efficacy of diphenhydramine in the prevention of vertigo and nausea at 7T MRI. med./biol.
Thormann M, Amthauer H, Adolf D, Wollrab A, Ricke J, Speck O (2013), Eur J Radiol 82 (5): 768 - 772
Exposure: static magnetic field, MRI, co-exposure
DETAILS * Are media warnings about the adverse health effects of modern life self-fulfilling? An experimental study on idiopathic environmental intolerance attributed to electromagnetic fields (IEI-EMF). med./biol.
Witthöft M, Rubin GJ (2013), J Psychosom Res 74 (3): 206 - 212
Aim: To test whether media reports promote the development of electrosensitivity.
Endpoints: hypersensitivity/subjective complaints (symptoms following sham exposure, worries about electromagnetic fields, attributing symptoms to the sham exposure, perceived sensitivity to electromagnetic fields)
DETAILS * Acute effects of electromagnetic fields emitted by GSM mobile phones on subjective well-being and physiological reactions: a meta-analysis. med./biol.
Augner C, Gnambs T, Winker R, Barth A (2012), Sci Total Environ 424: 11 - 15
Aim: To identify the possible short-term effects of electromagnetic fields emitted by GSM 900 and GSM 1800 mobile phones on subjective and objective indicators of well-being by conducting a meta-analysis based on a large pool of studies.
Endpoints: effects on cardiovascular system (physiological measures (heart rate, heart rate variability, blood pressure)); hypersensitivity/subjective complaints (subjective symptoms (headache, nausea, fatigue, dizziness, skin irritation))
Exposure: 835 MHz - 1.8 GHz, mobile communication system, mobile phone, analog mobile phone, GSM, NMT
DETAILS * Origins of electromagnetic hypersensitivity to 60 Hz magnetic fields: A provocation study. med./biol.
Kim DW, Choi JL, Nam KC, Yang DI, Kwon MK (2012), Bioelectromagnetics 33 (4): 326 - 333
Aim: To study whether 60 Hz magnetic fields influence heart rate, respiratory rate and heart rate variability, or give rise to subjective symptoms in electrosensitivity and non-electrosensitivity subjects. Furthermore, electrosensitivity and non-electrosensitivity subjects' ability to perceive exposure to a magnetic field was compared to determine the origin of the subjective symptoms experienced by individuals with electrosensitivity.
Endpoints: effects on cardiovascular system (heart rate, respiratory rate and heart rate variability); hypersensitivity/subjective complaints (subjective symptoms and field perception ability)
Exposure: 60 Hz, magnetic field, low frequency field, 50/60 Hz (AC)

Endpoints: hypersensitivity/subjective complaints (diverse symptomatic responses, field perception)
Exposure: 60 Hz - 500 kHz, electric field, intermediate frequency, signals/pulses, 50/60 Hz (AC)
