To study the effects of an electromagnetic field emitted by a mobile phone on endometrial apoptosis and lipid peroxidation in the rat and to study the ameliorating effects of a combination of vitamin E and vitamin C against electromagnetic field damage.
24 rats were divided in three groups: (1) sham-exposed group, (2) electromagnetic field exposed group, and (3) electromagnetic field exposed group, treated with vitamin E and vitamin C (administered before daily exposure).
|ばく露時間||repeated daily exposure, 30 min/day, for 30 days|
|Repetition frequency||217 Hz|
|ばく露装置の詳細||A special device with antennae for insulated exposure was used. The individual animal was placed in a ventilated plastic tube cage (5 cm in diameter, 12 cm long) positioned over a half-wave dipole antenna.|
|Sham exposure||A sham exposure was conducted.|
Exposure to 900 MHz electromagnetic field emitted by a mobile phone may cause endometrial apoptosis and oxidative stress: partly significantly differences in immunohistochemistry of caspase-3, caspase-8, Bcl-2 and Bax between exposed groups and control group were found as well as increased malondialdehyde level in exposed groups. However, treatment with vitamin E and vitamin C could diminish these changes and may have a beneficial effect in preventing endometrial changes in rats.
