Other - Immune System

No difference was found in salivary levels of selected markers of the immune system in volunteers exposed or sham-exposed to 900 MHz for 4-hour periods (Radon, 2001).

One report suggested that a 30 minute exposure to radiation from a cell phone could change immune markers of latex allergy in patients with eczema who were allergic to this substance (Kimata, 2005).
