In these two studies the effect of RF radiation on liver carcinogenesis was investigated. Six week-old rats were given a dose of diethylnitrosamine (DEN), which promotes liver cancer. The RF radiation was given for 90 minutes per day, 5 days per week, over 6 weeks, and was started 2 weeks after the DEN injection. At 3 weeks (one week after the RF exposure was started) the rats had 2/3 of their liver removed, and at week 8 the rats were killed.

In the first study, the radiation was a pulse-modulated 929.2 MHz near-field of time division multiple access (TDMA) signal. The whole-body average SAR was 0.58-0.80 W/kg. The peak SARs within the liver, the target organ, were 1.7-2.0 W/kg. There were no significant differences between the exposed and control groups in areas of carcinogenic potential within the liver.

The second study used a 1.439 GHz EM field. The whole-body average SARs were 0.453-0.680 W/kg. The peak SARs within the liver were 0.937-1.91 W/kg. Again, there were no significant differences between the exposed and control groups in areas of carcinogenic potential within the liver.
