To study the effect of mobile telephone exposure on blood-brain barrier permeability in the brain of neonatal mice.
A positive control group with cadmium-induced blood-brain barrier damage was also included.
Modulation type: pulsed
ばく露時間: repeated daily exposure, 60 min/day, for 7 days

|ばく露装置の詳細||The exposure system consisted of a cylindrical parallel plate with mice restrained motionless in clear Perspex tubes arranged radially around the antenna [Finnie et al., 2001].|
|Sham exposure||A sham exposure was conducted.|
|Additional information||A non-exposed, freely moving, cage control group without handling was also included.|

No albumin extravasation was found in brains of exposed or control (sham exposed and freely moving caged) mice. By contrast, in the positive control mice there was substantial albumin extravasation.
It appears that exposure of the developing mouse brain to mobile phone-type radiofrequency electromagnetic fields does not produce any perturbations of blood-brain barrier integrity.
