Mobile phones are widely used nowadays and there have been many reports suspecting mobile phone radiation‐induced cancer during the past few years[1‐5].But the results to date have given no consistent or convincing evidence of a causal relation between radiofrequency field exposure and cancer risks[6‐7].On May31,2011,International Agency for Research on Cancer(IARC),which is affiliated with World Health Organization(WHO), 
Radiation Exposure and Bell’s Palsy: A Hypothetical Association
It is hypothesized radiation (in both forms of ionization and non-ionization) may cause Bell’s palsy and the role of radiotherapy, radiofrequency radiation from mobile phones and wireless devices in HSV reactivation and Bell's palsy should be investigated. Expand

Results reveal that: exposure to DAMPS and TDMA in 19 and 58 weeks did not indicate cocarcinogenic effect on skin tumorigenesis; the two year study on the carcinogenic potential in female and male B6C3F1 exposed to GSM-900 and DCS-1800 fields did not show any overall increase in the incidence of tumours.

Pathogenic roles for Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) gene products in EBV-associated proliferative disorders.
In the following pages, an overview of the biology of EBV-infection is given and functional aspects of EBv-proteins are discussed and their putative role in the variousEBV-associated disorders is described. Expand
Epigenetic changes in virus-associated human cancers
This review will focus on hypermethylation and tumor suppressor gene silencing and the signal pathways that are involved, particularly in cancers closely associated with the hepatitis B virus, simian virus 40 (SV40), and Epstein-Barr virus. Expand
Differential Effect of TPA on Cell Growth and Epstein-Barr Virus Reactivation in Epithelial Cell Lines Derived from Gastric Tissues and B Cell Line Raji
It is demonstrated that TPA affects differentially for the stimulation and inhibition of cell growth, and also EBV reactivation depends on TPA concentrations and cell types. Expand
The Possible Role of Radiofrequency Radiation in the Development of Uveal Melanoma
This is the first study describing an association between radiofrequency radiation exposure and uveal melanoma and several methodologic limitations prevent the results from providing clear evidence on the hypothesized association. Expand
Lymphomas in E mu-Pim1 transgenic mice exposed to pulsed 900 MHZ electromagnetic fields.
Long-term intermittent exposure to RF fields can enhance the probability that mice carrying a lymphomagenic oncogene will develop lymphomas, and it is suggested that such genetically cancer-prone mice provide an experimental system for more detailed assessment of dose-response relationships for risk of cancer after RF-field exposure.

The Curious Case of the IARC Working Group on Radio Frequency Electromagnetic Fields and Cell Phones [Health Effects]
The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) announced on 31 May 2011 that it has classified radio frequency (RF) electromagnetic fields (EMFs), including those employed by cellular mobileExpand
The Epstein–Barr virus lytic program is controlled by the co‐operative functions of two transactivators
It is shown that BRLF1 and BZLF1 harbor distinct but complementary functions that influence all stages of viral production. Expand
Case-control study on the use of cellular and cordless phones and the risk for malignant brain tumours
The ipsilateral use of an analogue cellular phone yielded a significantly increased risk for malignant brain tumours, and this risk was significantly increased in the analysis of ipsilaterally exposure. Expand
Cancer in Radar Technicians Exposed to Radiofrequency/Microwave Radiation: Sentinel Episodes
It is suggested that young persons exposed to high levels of RF/MW radiation for long periods in settings where preventive measures were lax were at increased risk for cancer, and very short latency periods suggest high risks from high-level exposures. Expand
