Urinary 6-sulphatoxymelatonin excretion is increased in rats after 24 hours of exposure to vertical 50 Hz, 100 microT magnetic field.

The effect of exposure to a 50 Hz, vertical magnetic field on the excretion of urinary 6-sulphatoxymelatonin (aMT6s) of rats was studied in a self-controlled experiment. Ten male Wistar rats were kept under 9:15 h light: dark conditions in metabolic cages. The rats were exposed to 1.0 or 100 microT flux density for 24 h. The excretion of aMT6s, which is the… CONTINUE READING
