Exposure duration: continuous for 45 min/day, 5 days/week for up to 42 weeks
|Exposure duration||continuous for 45 min/day, 5 days/week for up to 42 weeks|
|Additional info||f = 848.5 MHz with a channel bandwidth of 1.23 MHz for the CDMA signal f= 1950 MHz with a channel bandwith of 5 MHz for the WCDMA signal both signals applied simultaneously|
|Chamber||2.29 m x 2.29 m x 1.47 m reverberation chamber, 2.3 mm thickness of wall|
|Setup||215 mm x 320 mm x 130 mm cages placed on a 1.32 m x 1.32 m x 0.7 m wooden table inside the chamber; 5 mice per cage|
|Sham exposure||A sham exposure was conducted.|
|Additional info||the article contains unclear information on the number of cages exposed simultaneously (4 or 8)|
No differences were found in final survival, lymphoma incidence, and splenomegaly incidence between sham exposed and radiofrequency exposed mice. However, occurrence of metastasis infiltration to the brain in lymphoma-bearing mice was significantly different in radiofrequency exposed mice when compared to sham exposed mice, even though no consistent correlation was observed between male and female mice (increase in female mice, but decrease in male mice). However, infiltration occurrence to liver, lung, and spleen was not different between the groups.
The authors conclude that simultaneous exposure to CDMA and WCDMA radiofrequency electromagnetic fields did not affect lymphoma development in AKR/J mice.
