この研究は、2.40GHzのWi-Fi信号への長期ばく露の影響を評価した動物研究である。野生種のマウスおよびアルツハイマー病に類似した認知障害を発症するようにした三重トランスジェニックマウス(3xTg-AD)を、比吸収率SAR)1.60W/kgの無線周波RF)信号に2時間/日、1ヵ月間ばく露したそれぞれのマウスのばく露群および擬似ばく露群は各7匹とした。ばく露終了後、3種類の認知行動テストを実施した。その結果、3xTg-ADマウスのRFばく露群において、認知行動の改善が見られた、と報告している。

研究目的(著者による)

To study the effects of a 4-week exposure to a 2.4 GHz WiFi signal on transgenic mice carrying mutations linked with Alzheimer's disease.

詳細情報

Triple transgenic mice with three human genes associated with Alzheimer's disease were used: Amyloid Beta Precursor protein (APP sw), Presenilin 1 (PS1M146V), and tau P301L. The non transgenic mice (wild type) had the same genetic backround as the transgenic mice.
Mice were divided into four groups (each group n = 7): two groups of transgenic mice (exposed and sham exposed), and two groups of wild type mice (exposed and sham exposed).

研究の主なアウトカム(著者による)

The data demonstrated that radiofrequency exposure improved cognitive behavior of transgenic mice in the Dark/Light-Box test and the Barnes maze. Exposure to the WiFi signals reduced the latency and made the transgenic mice less anxious. No effects on locomotor activity, body weight or body temperature were found.
The authors conclude that radiofrequency exposure may represent an effective memory-enhancing approach in Alzheimer's disease.
