To study the extent of radiofrequency induced oxidative DNA damage by measuring the level of 8-hydroxy-2-deoxyguanosine in mice tissues after 900 MHz mobile phone exposure.
36 mice were divided into an exposure group and a sham exposure group (each group n=18; with three subgroups of six mice each). Tissue samples were taken 24 h after exposure.
ばく露時間: 30 min/day for 30 days
|ばく露時間||30 min/day for 30 days|
|チャンバの詳細||mice placed randomly in groups of six animals in plastic cages exposed to the mobile phone fields|
|ばく露装置の詳細||the antenna was located about 5 cm next to the cage|
|Sham exposure||A sham exposure was conducted.|
|SAR||1 W/kg||average over mass||測定値および計算値||whole body||equivalent to 25 V/m|
All animals survived the whole experimental period and the body weight of the animals did not change significantly at the end of the experiment. Additionally, no statistically significant differences were found in the parameters of oxidative stress.
In conclusion, the data indicate that a 900 MHz radiofrequency exposure did not induce a significant oxidative DNA damage under these experimental conditions.
