To study the effects of GSM mobile phone irradiation upon the blood-brain barrier permeability of rats seven days after one occasion of 2 h of exposure and whether the same increase of the blood-brain barrier permeability is seen seven days after exposure as that showed immediately after exposure (see Persson et al. 1997) and after 14 days (see Eberhardt et al. 2008), and whether different exposure levels (SAR values) result in a different responses.
The first section of the article inculdes also a review of the literature on the effects (or lack of effects) of microwave exposure upon the blood-brain barrier.
Modulation type: pulsed
ばく露時間: continuous for 2 hr
|ばく露時間||continuous for 2 hr|
|ばく露装置の詳細||GSM mobile phone connected via a coaxial cable to the TEM cell; TEM cell cenclosed in a 15 cm x 15 cm x 15 cm wooden box that supports the outer brass net conductor and the central conducting plate; rats placed in 14 cm x 14 cm x 7 cm plastic tray in the TEM cell|
|Sham exposure||A sham exposure was conducted.|
Albumin extravasation was statistically significant increased in the mobile phone exposed rats as compared to sham exposed controls after this 7-day recovery period at the SAR value of 12 mW/kg and with a trend of enhanced albumin extravasation also at the SAR values of 0.12 mW/kg and 120 mW/kg. There was a low, but significant correlation between the exposure level (SAR-value) and occurrence of focal albumin extravasation.
The data are in agreement with earlier studies of the authors (see above and "related articles") where they have seen increased permeability of blood-brain barrier immediately and 14 days after exposure.
