Exposure duration: 30 min, 1 h or 1.5 h continuous
mice were exposed in the following four groups: i) MF off + Pentylenetetrazol + MF off (sham) ii) MF on for 1 h + Pentylenetetrazol + MF on for 30 min iii) MF on for 1 h + Pentylenetetrazol + MF off iv) MF off + Pentylenetetrazol + MF on for 30 min

Neither pre- nor post-drug exposure to a 50 Hz magnetic field (0.2 mT) had any effect on pentylenetetrazol-induced epileptic seizures or mortality rates in mice.
The data failed to provide any support for a therapeutic potential of a 50 Hz magnetic field (0.2 mT) for epilepsy.
