Vijayalaxmi, Pickard WF, Bisht KS, Prihoda TJ, et al. (2001)

In this study eight rats were exposed for 24 hours to 2450 MHz continuous wave radiation at an average whole-body SAR of 12 W/kg. Eight rats were sham-exposed and another four were treated with mitomycin-C (MMC), a substance that is known to induce micronuclei. Peripheral blood and bone marrow erythrocytes were examined to determine the frequency of micronuclei.

There were no significant differences in the incidence of micronuclei between RFR-exposed and sham-exposed animals. The MMC-treated rats had increased numbers of micronuclei in their cells.
