Other Studies - Immune System


In vivo studies by Chagnaud and by Gatta failed to show any effect of RFR on immune function, while an in vitro study by Dabrowski showed some effects. Further research is needed.

Tuschl (2006) found no alterations in immune markers in cells exposed to RFR. Nasta (2006) examined B-cell peripheral cells and antibody production in mice and discovered no abnormalities. Capri (2006) noted a slight downregulation in CD95 expression in CD4+ lymphocytes exposed to RFR intermittently for 44 hours at 1800 MHz and SAR of 2 W/kg.
