To study the influence of electromagnetic irradiation of a GSM mobile phone (900 MHz) on the growth of the parasites Entamoeba histolytica and Entamoeba dispar (cysts or trophozoites, or both) in a 24-hour period.
Modulation type: pulsed
Exposure duration: intermittent, 60 s/h for 24 h
|Exposure duration||intermittent, 60 s/h for 24 h|
|Chamber||The mobile phone was placed in front of the medium tubes in an incubator (37?C) or in a plastic coated, heat insulated box (22?C).|
|Setup||The mobile phones were turned to speech position for 60 seconds at 1-hour intervals during a total period of 24 hours.|
|Additional info||Control groups were also divided into two temperature sub-groups but placed in another laboratory environment without mobile phones.|
No parameters are specified for this exposure.
The number of E. histolytica and E. dispar decreased after electromagnetic field exposure at 37°C and room temperature (22°C) compared to the control group.
The results showed that exposure to electromagnetic field for a certain period of time may cause damage that can lead to death in single-cell organisms.
