To evaluate the effects of extremely low frequency magnetic field (ELFMF) on beta-cell survival and function, we cultured a hamster-derived insulin-secreting cell line (HIT-T15), which exhibits responsiveness to glucose in a semi-physiological range, under exposure to sham and ELFMF conditions, and assessed cell survival and function. We used our previously developed ELFMF exposure unit (a sinusoidal magnetic field at a frequency of 60 Hz, 5 mT) to culture cells under exposure to ELFMF… CONTINUE READING
