The study summarized previous published (see publication 7584 and publication 13912) and unpublished data of the authors work on different experimental set ups and compared the results to those of similar other studies.
|magnetic flux density||0.2 mT||-||-||-||-|
Extremely low frequency electromagnetic field exposure at magnetic flux density of 2 mT increased statistically significant hydroxyproline content of the skin compared to control group.
Statistical significant difference between electromagnetic field exposed group and control group were observed in increased plasma Ca2+ concentration.
In lung and kidney, exposure to 1 mT and 2 mT increased malondialdehyde concentration in four hours exposure/day whereas they caused a decrease in eight hours exposure/day. In brain significant increase in malondialdehyde concentration was observed in eight hours exposure/day at 2 mT.
Electromagnetic fields caused significant increase in lung tissue nitric oxide levels.
Increased renal myeloperoxidase activities were found for all magnetic field exposures and exposure periods.
No significant effect of electromagnetic field exposure on drug induced epileptic seizure was found.
These results indicate that extremely low frequency electromagnetic field has effects on the tissues examined.
