Study Type In Vitro
Model 800 MHz (AMPS, CDMA) exposure to human lymphocytes and analysis of chromosome aberrations

Peripheral blood cells from human volunteers (n = 8) were exposed to 800 MHz (AMPS, CDMA) mobile phone signals at SARs of 2, 5, or 10 W/kg and analyzed for chromosome aberrations. The authors report preliminary results indicating a dose dependent effect on increasing acrocentric chromosomes and altering satellite length.
