RF radiation-induced changes in the prenatal development of mice. med./biol. By: Magras IN, Xenos TD
Published in: Bioelectromagnetics 1997; 18 (6): 455 - 461 ( PubMed Entry , Journal web site )
Aim of study (according to author)
To study possible effects of radiofrequency irradiation on prenatal development in mice.
General category: radio frequency field, Radio/TV transmitter, TV broadcast (VHF/UHF), FM broadcast, AM radio transmitters, shortwave broadcast
FIELD View further expo parameters
animal (species/strain): mouse/BALB/c/f
whole body exposure
investigated material: dead newborn mice
- effects on embryo/fetus: teratogenicity (size and weight of newborn mice; macroscopic and microscopic investigation of newborns; number of newborns/dam)
time of investigation: after exposure
Main outcome of study (according to author)
A progressive decrease in the number of newborns per dam was found, which ended in irreversible infertility. The prenatal development of the newborns, however, evaluated by the crown-rump length, the body weight, and the number of the vertebrae, was improved.
