Influence of 864 MHz electromagnetic field on growth kinetics of established cell line med./bio.

Aim of study (acc. to author)

To study the influence of 864 MHz electromagnetic fields on cell proliferation, colony forming ability and cell viability of the cell line V79 after exposure to 1, 2 and 3 hours.

Main outcome of study (acc. to author)

Growth curves of exposed cells showed a significant decrease after 2 and 3 hours of exposure on experimental day 3, respectively, in comparison to sham exposed cells. Both, the colony forming ability and cell viability of exposed cells did not significantly differ from sham exposure condition.
In conclusion, under strictly controlled laboratory conditions, applied radiofrequency irradiation significantly affected cell proliferation kinetics but not cell viability or ability of V79 cells to form colonies.
