The concerns of people on possible adverse health effects of radiofrequency radiation (RFR) generated from mobile phones as well as their supporting transmitters (base stations) have increased markedly. [...] Key Method Thirteen-month-old rabbits were studied in four groups as non-pregnant-control, non-pregnant-RFR exposed, pregnant-control and pregnant-RFR exposed. They were exposed to RFR (1800 MHz GSM; 14 V/m as reference level) for 15 min/day during 7 days.Expand
The influence of 1800 MHz GSM-like signals on blood chemistry and oxidative stress in non-pregnant and pregnant rabbits
TLDR
Investigations have been shown that no indication for oxidative stress was detected in the blood of pregnant rabbits upon RF exposure at specific conditions employed in the present study. Expand
The effect of radiofrequency radiation on DNA and lipid damage in female and male infant rabbits
TLDR
It can be concluded that GSM-like RF radiation may induce biochemical changes by increasing free radical attacks to structural biomolecules in the rabbit as an experimental animal model. Expand
Effects of Prenatal and Postnatal Exposure to GSM-Like Radiofrequency on Blood Chemistry and Oxidative Stress in Infant Rabbits, an Experimental Study
TLDR
Results showed that serum lipid peroxidation level in both female and male rabbits changed due to the RFR exposure, however, different parameters of the blood biochemistry were affected by exposure in male and female infants. Expand
Neurodegenerative changes and apoptosis induced by intrauterine and extrauterine exposure of radiofrequency radiation
TLDR
This study performed to identify the effects of global system for mobile communications (GSM) modulated mobile phone like RFR in 1800MHz frequency on oxidative DNA damage and lipid peroxidation beside the apoptotic cell formation in the brain tissue of 1-month-old male and female New Zealand White rabbits that were exposed to these fields at their mother's womb and after the birth.

Effects of radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation emitted from a mobile phone base station on the redox homeostasis in different organs of Swiss albino mice
TLDR
Exposure to RF-EMR from MPBS may cause adverse effects in mice brain by inducing oxidative stress arising from the generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) as indicated by enhanced lipid peroxidation, and reduced levels and activities of antioxidants. Expand
Impact of electromagnetic radiation exposure during pregnancy on embryonic skeletal development in rats
TLDR
The electromagnetic radiation exposure during pregnancy alter the processes of bone mineralization and the intensity of bone turnover processes, and thus impact embryonic skeleton formation and development directly. Expand
Comparison of effects of 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi and mobile phone exposure on human placenta and cord blood
TLDR
The results of this study indicated that mobile phone exposure during pregnancy could have an important potential to cause oxidative stress and DNA damage in cord blood and placenta. Expand
A genotoxic analysis of the hematopoietic system after mobile phone type radiation exposure in rats
TLDR
No significant changes were observed in the hematopoietic system of rats after the exposure of CW/PM wave 900 MHz/1800 MHz RF radiations at different SAR values. Expand
Evaluation of hematopoietic system effects after in vitro radiofrequency radiation exposure in rats
TLDR
The findings revealed no effect on the hematopoietic system in rats for 900 MHz CW RF exposure at the 2 W/kg localised SAR limit value recommended by the International Commission for Non-Ionising Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) for public exposures. Expand
Different periods of intrauterine exposure to electromagnetic field: Influence on female rats' fertility, prenatal and postnatal development
TLDR
It is suggested that long-term exposure to EMF during the pregnancy lead to chronic stress, which has detrimental effects on pre-& postnatal development and for that more studies to clarify such harmful effects are recommended. Expand

Radiofrequency fields and teratogenesis.
TLDR
Experimental studies that sought teratologic effects or developmental abnormalities from exposure to radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (RFEMF) in the range 3 kHz-300 GHz are critically reviewed for their possible consequences on human health and indicate that teratological effects can occur only from exposure levels that cause biologically detrimental increases in body temperature.

Genetic damage in mobile phone users: some preliminary findings
TLDR
A correlation between mobile phone use (exposure to RFR) and genetic damage and require interim public health actions in the wake of widespread use of mobile telephony are highlighted. Expand
Observations of rat fetuses after irradiation with 2450-MHz (CW) microwaves.
TLDR
These conditions do not have an effect on the gross structure of the fetal rat when applied repetitively during post-implantation pregnancy, and it is strongly suspected that this lack of an effect may hold true at any exposure level less than that which will kill a significant number of the dams by hyperthermia. Expand
Fetal and maternal effects of continual exposure of rats to 970-MHz circularly polarized microwaves
TLDR
Virtually continual exposure to 970-MHz microwaves in circularly-polarized waveguides was used to elicit fetal responses in Sprague-Dawley rats during gestation, and there were no alterations in pregnancy rates, fetal numbers, fetal weights, fetal skeletal maturation, or preimplantation losses.

Effects of 900-MHz electromagnetic field emitted from cellular phone on brain oxidative stress and some vitamin levels of guinea pigs
TLDR
It was concluded that electromagnetic field emitted from cellular phone might produce oxidative stress in brain tissue of guinea pigs, however, more studies are needed to demonstrate whether these effects are harmful or/and affect the neural functions. Expand
Melatonin and a spin-trap compound block radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation-induced DNA strand breaks in rat brain cells.
TLDR
Treatment of rats immediately before and after RFR exposure with either melatonin or the spin-trap compound N-tert-butyl-alpha-phenylnitrone (PBN) blocks this effects of RFR. Expand
Decreased body weight in fetal rats after irradiation with 2450-MHz (CW) microwaves.
TLDR
It is concluded that even though a change in the malformation rate is not effected in rats, a fetotoxic effect does occur due to microwave-exposure conditions which raise maternal rectal temperatures to approx. Expand

TLDR
Reactive oxygen species may play a role in the mechanism that has been proposed to explain the biological side effects of MP, and Gb prevents the MP-induced oxidative stress to preserve antioxidant enzymes activity in brain tissue. Expand

TLDR
No significant difference was observed between the effects of the two forms of radiation, and it is speculated that these effects could result from a direct effect of radiofrequency electromagnetic energy on DNA molecules and/or impairment of DNA-damage repair mechanisms in brain cells. Expand
Effects of electromagnetic radiation from a cellular telephone on the oxidant and antioxidant levels in rabbits
TLDR
Investigation of the influence of electromagnetic radiation of a digital GSM mobile telephone on oxidant and antioxidant levels in rabbits found increased SOD activity, and serum NO levels decreased in EMR‐exposed animals compared to the sham group, which may indicate the possible role of increased oxidative stress in the pathophysiology of adverse effect of EMR.
