Effects of 100 µT extremely low frequency electromagnetic fields exposure on hematograms and blood chemistry in rats.
Published in: J Radiat Res 2016; 57 (1): 16-24
Aim of study (acc. to author)
continuous for 20 h/day for 3 months
continuous for 20 h/day for 3 months
plastic cages of 45 x 20 x 35 cm (L x W x H)
exposure device was a rack made of plastics (1 x 2 x 2 m (L x W x H) with five floors made of bronze wires to produce magnetic field; the top and bottom floors were made of 400 turns and the internal floors were made of 200 turns of wire; inside the device, a four-floor shelf was placed, which was also made with plastic in the center, and the height of every floor was the same as that of the device (?); two un- restrained rats per cage
sham exposure was conducted.
effects on the
immune system: blood count: count of total white blood cells, lymphocytes, neutrophils, red blood cells and platelets, level of hemoglobin (before and after exposure; automatic hematologic analyzer) morphol./histopathol. changes: body weight (every 2 weeks), food intake, water intake (weekly); weight and
histology of liver and kidney ( hematoxylin-eosin stain, microscopy)
biochemical blood parameters: enzyme activities of alanine aminotransferase and aspartate aminotransferase ( markers for liver function), levels of urea nitrogen and creatinine ( markers for kidney function), levels of total cholesterol, triglycerides, low-density lipoprotein, high-density lipoprotein, glucose, calcium and magnesium (every 4 weeks; automatic analyzer)
