|Setup||pair of coils (60 cm diameter, 30 cm distance); coils placed inside a Faraday cage (90 cm x 90 cm x 50 cm); animals put into plexyglass cage (30 cm x 30 cm x 20 cm) in the center of the coils|
|Sham exposure||A sham exposure was conducted.|
|Additional info||each frequency train of 1 Hz, 10, Hz, 20 Hz and 40 Hz was given for 4-min and with 1-min intervals between each frequency (together 20 min.); on each day, three exposue cycles performed (1 h)|
The data showed an increase in the levels of oxidative stress indicators: the levels of the plasma enzymes and plasma albumin, bilirubin, and total protein were significantly increased in the exposed group compared with the sham exposed group and the control group. Additionally, lipid peroxidation and the superoxide dismutase level were also increased in the liver tissue of exposed animals compared with the sham exposed and the control group.
There was no statistical significant difference in viable and apoptotic cell percentages among the different groups. However, there was a significantly lower necrotic cell percentage in exposed animals compared with unexposed or sham exposed rats.
