Medical/biological Study (experimental study)
The effect of 835.62 MHz FDMA or 847.74 MHz CDMA modulated radiofrequency radiation on the induction of micronuclei in C3H 10T(1/2) cells. med./biol. By: Bisht KS, Moros EG, Straube WL, Baty JD, Roti Roti JL
Published in: Radiat Res 2002; 157 (5): 506 - 515 ( PubMed Entry , Journal web site )
Aim of study (according to author)
To determine if radiofrequency radiation induces the formation of micronuclei.
General category: mobile communication system, CDMA, FDMA
FIELD View further expo parameters
intact cell/cell culture (in vitro)
C3H 10T1/2 cells (derived from mouse embryo fibroblasts)
Methodsinvestigated material: intact cell/cell culture (in vitro)
time of investigation: after exposure
Main outcome of study (according to author)
Exposure of C3H10T1/2 cells in exponential growth or in plateauphase to 847.74 MHz CDMA or 835.62 MHz FDMA (at 3.2 W/kg for 24h) did not induce micronuclei.
