Effect of long-term mobile communication microwave exposure on vascular permeability in mouse brain. med./biol. By: Finnie JW, Blumbergs PC, Manavis J, Utteridge TD, Gebski V, Davies RA, Vernon-Roberts B, Kuchel TR
Published in: Pathology 2002; 34 (4): 344 - 347 ( PubMed Entry , Journal web site )
Aim of study (according to author)
To study the effect of long-term exposure to global system for mobile communication (GSM) radiofrequency fields on vascular permeability in murine brains.
General category: mobile communication system, GSM, microwaves
| 900 MHz |
exposure duration: repeated daily exposure for 60 min/day, 5 days/week for 2 years
|SAR: 0.25 W/kg average over mass (whole body)|
SAR: 1 W/kg average over mass (whole body)
SAR: 2 W/kg average over mass (whole body)
SAR: 4 W/kg average over mass (whole body)
FIELD View further expo parameters
animal (species/strain): mouse/C57BL/6NTac
whole body exposure
Methodsinvestigated material: tissue slices (in vitro)
investigated organ system: brain/CNS
time of investigation: after exposure
Main outcome of study (according to author)
Prolonged exposure to radiofrequency fields used in mobile communication produced negligible disruption of blood-brain barrier integrity and minimal albumin leakage in control and exposed mice.
