exposed five days before mating. Additionally, pregnant mice were exposed to GSM 900 MHz from the beginning of the pregnancy (total exposure time during pregnancy: 1) 5 mice for 0 min, 2) 7 mice for 126 min (6 min/day) and 3) 7 mice for 630 min (30 min/day)). 7 newborns of group 1, 20 newborns of group 2 and 20 newborns of group 3 were investigated: Within 5 h after birth most newborns were investigated. Other newborns (5 of group 1, 7 of group 2 and 7 of group 3) remained with their mothers until teeth eruption before further investigation. Endpoint
