PURPOSE To investigate the ability of electromagnetic (EM) field pre-exposures to induce protection in chick embryos against subsequent ultraviolet (UV) light exposure. MATERIALS AND METHOD Chick embryos in the 4th day of gestation were exposed for 20 minutes (short term) or 96 hours (long term) to 60 Hz, 8 microT magnetic or sham fields (controls) followed by 30 minutes rest. They were then exposed to UV radiation of either low (30J/m2) or high (45J/m2) intensity (long term was exposed only… CONTINUE READING
