This study by Vijayalaxmi and colleagues failed to find evidence of genotoxicity when lymphocytes were exposed for 24 hours to continuous -wave 847.74 MHz RF radiation (CDMA) at a SAR of 4.9 or 5.5 W/kg. Cells were exposed to RF radiation, or sham exposed, or exposed to an acute dose of 1.5 Gy of gamma radiation.
There were no significant
differences between RF-radiation-exposed and sham-exposed lymphocytes
with respect to mitotic indices, frequencies of exchange aberrations,
excess fragments, binucleate cells and micronuclei. The response of
gamma-irradiated lymphocytes was significantly different from both RF-radiation-exposed
and sham-exposed cells for all these indices.
