The goal of this study was "to determine whether radiofrequency radiation (RFR) is capable of inducing oxidative stress in cultured mammalian cells". The production of intracellular oxidants, antioxidants, and oxidative damage to thiols were investigated.

The RFR was delivered by one of two signal types - 847.74 MHz CDMA or 835.62 MHz FMCW. The average SAR was 0.80 ± 0.13 W/kg. The cells used were mouse macrophages, and they were exposed to the RFR for 20 - 22 hours.

The results of these studies indicated that FMCW- and CDMA-modulated RFR did not alter parameters indicative of oxidative stress in the cells. In addition there was no evidence of an effect on cell viability.
