Blood from 80 healthy volunteers was anti-coagulated with either sodium citrate or heparin (n=40 each). Each sample was divided in an exposed and a sham exposed sample. Adenosine diphosphate, collagen, and epinephrine were used as aggregation inducing agents. 60 samples (30 sodium citrate, 30 heparin) were exposed at 1 mT, 20 samples were exposed at 6 mT (10 sodium citrate, 10 heparin).
|Exposure duration||continuous for 1.5 h|
|Exposure duration||continuous for 1 h|
Exposure to a 1 mT 50 Hz magnetic field for 1.5 h had a significant effect on the aggregation parameters of collagen-induced aggregation in sodium citrate treated samples: the maximum values and slope of the collagen-induced aggregation curve were significantly increased. No significant differences were found in any other group.
