To study whether 1.8 GHz radiofrequency irradiation can influence DNA repair in human leukocytes exposed to X-rays.
Leukocytes from four young healthy donors were intermittently exposed to radiofrequency for 24 h, and then irradiated with X-rays at doses of 0.25, 0.5, 1.0 and 2.0 Gy. DNA damage was detected at 0, 15, 45, 90, 150 and 240 min after exposure to X-rays.
Modulation type: pulsed
ばく露時間: 5 min on - 10 min off, for 24 hr

|Repetition frequency||217 Hz|
|ばく露装置の詳細||waveguide inside an incubator; cells kept inside the waveguide at a constant temperature; cells placed in the H-field maximum of the standing wave|
|Sham exposure||A sham exposure was conducted.|

The data showed that the DNA repair speeds of human leukocytes after X-ray exposure exhibited individual differences among the four donors. Additionally, the intermittent exposures of 1.8 GHz radiofrequency for 24 h did not directly induce a DNA damage or exhibit synergistic effects with X-rays on human leukocytes.
