Abstract

Previous literature suggested that brain cancer patients with heavy cell phone use showed reduced survival. Here we aimed to test survival and tumor aggressiveness in the C6 cells glioblastoma model in Wistar rats subjected to controlled brain averaged specific absorption rate (BASAR) induced by radiofrequency electromagnetic field (RF-EMF) exposures. For the first time, BASARdependent effects were reported in vivo by the reduction of apoptosis and by the reduction of inflammation in the tumor micro-environment. In accordance with the literature, our data did not suggest any impact on survival or tumor volume. Further replication studies are needed to confirm these observations.
