This study examined the effect of radiofrequency radiation (RFR) on the immune system of mice. In particular, the authors studied B-cell peripheral differentiation that occurs when B cells migrate from the bone marrow to the spleen. They also examined antibody production.

Three-month old mice were exposed to GSM-modulated 900 MHz RFR at a whole-body average SAR of 2 W/kg, 2 hours a day, 5 days per week, for 4 consecutive weeks. They were then sacrificed and spleen cells and antibody production examined. Eight mice in the experimental group were compared with 8 controls and 8 sham-exposed animals. The people preparing the biological samples and performing the biological tests did not know which animals were actually exposed.

The results showed that the RFR exposure did not affect the number or frequency of cells belonging to the different B-cell subsets, and that differentiation to antibody-producing cells and antibody production were not compromised.
