The effects of electromagnetic fields on the number of ovarian primordial follicles: An experimental study.
Published in: Kaohsiung J Med Sci 2015; 31 (6): 287-292
Aim of study (acc. to author)
continuous for 15 minutes/day for 15 days
radio frequency-shielded room
the researcher's left hand grasped the
rat at the neck and back and the right hand applied the antenna device to the skin of the rat over the ovaries in the lower abdominal area; ambient temperature of 22-26°C and 55-60% humidity
sham exposure was conducted.
rats of the sham exposure group were taken from their cages and treated with the antenna in the same manner as rats in the experimental group, but the exposure device was turned off
