Modulation type: AM
Exposure duration: 30 min
|Exposure duration||30 min|
|Modulation frequency||16 Hz|
|Modulation depth||80 %|
|Chamber||Incubator maintained at 37°|
|Setup||Two flasks were placed inside the Crawford cell|
|Additional info||Two other flasks were placed outside the Crawford cell but in the same incubator which served as control. SAR was determined from incident, reflected and transmitted power measured with 1) an empty Crawford cell 2) a Crawford cell with an empty flask 3) a Crawford cell and flask with culture and 5 ml of growth medium.|

Significant 45Ca2+ efflux was obtained at SAR values of 0.05 and 0.005 W/kg. Chinese hamster-mouse hybrid neuroblastoma cells were also shown to exhibit enhanced radiation-induced 45Ca2+ efflux at a SAR of 0.05 W/kg. The results confirm that amplitude-modulated radiofrequency exposition can induce responses in cells of nervous tissue origin from widely different animal species, including humans. The findings are also consistent with the reports of similar findings in avian and feline brain tissue and indicate the general nature of the phenomen.
