In this study human blood cells were exposed for 2 hours to 900 MHz radiofrequency fields. Three methods of exposure were used: continuous carrier wave; pseudo-random signal, which corresponds to a GSM-signal as obtained during conversation; and a dummy burst signal that corresponds to the signal in stand by. For each mode of exposure, power outputs varied between 2 and 50 W, and the SARs were from 0.4 to 10 W/kg. The authors investigated the possible effects of the radiation alone as well as of combined exposure to the chemical mutagen mitomycin C or to X-rays. There was no indication of a mutagenic effect in the experiments.
