Effects of Electromagnetic Field of UHV Transmission Lines Exposure on Testis Tissue in Mice
Published in: IEEE Trans Magn 2009; 45 (10): 4853-4856
Aim of study (acc. to author)
40 mice (20 male, 20 female) were divided into an
exposure and a sham exposure group (10 males and 10 females in each group). Remark EMF-Portal: The employment of female mice does not make sense in the examined endpoints ( testis). Endpoint
5 mice were kept in one cage, respectively
electric field was induced by three-phase voltage lines which were connected to a secondary coil of the step-up transformer; lines were assumed to be straight, parallel to each other, with an equal distance (0.3 m); magnetic field was induced by three-phase current lines connected to a secondary coil of the step-down transformer and located beneath the insulating board; ground clearance of central line of the insulating board was 0.45 meter; primary coils of two transformers were respectively connected to two three-phase voltage dividers; mice cages were fixed at one side of B phase line (mid line)
