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
