Prenatal Exposure to Non-ionizing Radiation: Effects of WiFi Signals on Pregnancy Outcome, Peripheral B-Cell Compartment and Antibody Production.

掲載誌: Radiat Res 2010; 174 (6): 732-740

この研究は、WiFi信号への出生前(子宮内)ばく露妊娠結果および抗体産生を含む免疫B細胞コンパートメントに与える影響を調査した。交尾後の(膣栓陽性の)雌マウス16匹を同数の3群に分けた:ケージ対照群、擬似ばく露群、マイクロ波ばく露群(2.45GHzのWiFi信号、全身平均SAR:4W/kg、交尾5日後から14日間連続で1日2時間ばく露)。その結果、交尾成功率、母マウス1匹当たりの新生仔数、出生時体重にWiFi信号ばく露の影響は見られなかった、と報告している。次に、新生仔マウスが5週齢(幼若時)または26週齢(成熟時)になった時点で免疫学的検査を行った。その結果、脾臓細胞数、B細胞頻度、抗体血清レベルについて、ばく露に起因する差は見られなかった、と報告している。

研究目的(著者による)

To study the effects of prenatal (in utero) exposure to WiFi signals on pregnancy outcome and some immunological parameters.

詳細情報

16 mated female mice were assigned to each of the following groups: cage control, sham exposed and microwave-exposed group. After delivery newborn mice were left to grow until 5 or 26 weeks of age when they were killed and immunological analyses were performed.
To maximize the possibility of finding an effect, animals were exposed to a very high SAR (4 W/kg) that exceeds any realistic scenario of human exposure.

研究の主なアウトカム(著者による)

No effects due to exposure to WiFi signals during pregnancy on mating success, number of newborns per dam and body weight at birth were found.
No differences due to exposure were found in spleen cell number, B cell frequency or antibody serum levels. When stimulated in vitro with LPS, B cells from all groups produced comparable amounts of IgM and IgG, and proliferated at a similar level. All these findings were consistently observed in the female and male offspring at both juvenile (5 weeks) and adult (26 weeks) ages. Stress-associated effects (e.g. comparison of cage control and restrained rats of the other two groups) as well as age- and/or sex-related differences were observed for several parameters.
In conclusion, the data did not show any effect on pregnancy outcome or any early or late effects on B cell differentiation and function due to prenatal exposure to WiFi signals.
