In this study, we have pre-exposed human peripheral blood lymphocytes to non-ionizing radiofrequency fields (RF, 1950 MHz, UMTS signal, at 0.3 W/kg SAR) and then challenged them with ionizing radiation to examine the induction of adaptive response (AR). The results showed that 20 hours of pre-exposure of the cells to RF resulted in a significant reduction in the frequency of micronuclei induced by 1.0 and 1.5 Gy x-rays. Thus, the data indicated RF-induced AR.

Abstract

In this study, we have pre-exposed human peripheral blood lymphocytes to non-ionizing radiofrequency fields (RF, 1950 MHz, UMTS signal, at 0.3 W/kg SAR) and then challenged them with ionizing radiation to examine the induction of adaptive response (AR). The results showed that 20 hours of pre-exposure of the cells to RF resulted in a significant reduction in the frequency of micronuclei induced by 1.0 and 1.5 Gy x-rays. Thus, the data indicated RF-induced AR.
