Study type: Medical/biological study (observational study)

A chromosomal study of workers with long-term exposure to radio-frequency radiation. med./bio.

Published in: Med J Aust 1991; 155 (5): 289-292

Aim of study (acc. to author)

To examine whether an increased level of chromosome damage occurs in the stimulated lymphocytes of radio-linemen after long-term but intermittent exposure to radio-frequency radiation.
