Abstract

Background: In current study the consequence of chronic exposure of male and female rats to mobile-phone irradiation (900 MHz) and electromagnetic field (50 Hz) during the embryonic period on plasma and brain tissue total antioxidant capacity (TAC) and malondialdehyde (MDA) level were investigated. Material and Methods: After fertilization, female rats (n=9) were randomly divided into three groups: Control, Mobile phone -exposure and Exposure to 50 Hz electromagnetic field using a solenoid (LF). In LF group, female rats were placed daily inside a solenoid (50 Hz and 1.5 mT) for 30 minutes until giving birth. In Mobile-phone group, female rats were kept in their home cage while mobile-phone was placed in standby mode under the cage and turned on to calling mode 30 minutes each day until giving birth. After parturition and milk feeding, female and male pups were divided into 6 separated groups to measure TAC and MDA taken from plasma and brain. Results: In Control group the values of TAC and MDA for plasma and brain tissue showed no significant differences between the male and females rats. In addition, plasma TAC for Mobile-phone and LF groups showed no difference compared to Control. No significant difference was seen for plasma and brain MDA between the Mobile-phone and LF groups. Conclusion: Our results revealed that chronic exposure to electromagnetic field during the embryonic period have no significant effect on brain and plasma TAC and MDA level.
