To study the effects of radiofrequency irradiation applied alone or in combination with x-rays on genotoxicity in vitro in human lymphocytes. Combined exposures were used to examine whether radiofrequency irradiation might act epigenetically by reducing the fidelity of DNA repair of DNA damage caused by a well-characterized and established mutagen.
|Exposure duration||continuous for 24 h|
No effect of radiofrequency irradiation alone could be observed for any of the endpoints. In addition, radiofrequency exposure did not modify any measured effects of the x-radiation.
Within the experimental parameters of the study no genotoxic or epigenetic effects from the radiofrequency signal was found.
