The authors investigated how active cells, e.g. stimulated in vitro with mitogens and entering G1 phase and S phase, will react to the exposure to microwaves.
Cells were stimulated with phytohemagglutinin or with concanavalin A.
Cells were exposed immediately after entering the G1 phase (first day of exposure), again when the majority of cells responding to mitogen entered the S phase (second day of exposure), and finally when the responding cells reached G2 phase and mitosis (third day of exposure).
|ばく露時間||repeated daily exposure, 15 min at the beginning of each day, for 3 days|
|Pulse width||577 µs|
|Repetition frequency||217 Hz|
|Distance between exposed object and exposure source||6 cm|
|チャンバの詳細||A miniature anechoic chamber of 23 x 23 x 23 cm internal dimensions was located inside an incubator.|
|ばく露装置の詳細||A microplate with cultured cells was placed in the middle of the chamber with a mobile phone on the floor.|
Peripheral blood mononuclear cells exposed to microwaves demonstrated significantly higher response to mitogens and higher immunogenic activity of monocytes than control cultures. The proliferative response of T lymphocytes exposed to microwaves increased significantly.
The data suggest that immune activity of responding lymphocytes and monocytes can be additionally intensified by 900 MHz microwaves.
