    Abstract

    This paper presents the experimental configuration and procedure as well as the in-vitro assessment of Jurkat T-cells response to 1966 MHz exposure of modulated and unmodulated electromagnetic signals within a Gigahertz Transverse Electro-Magnetic (GTEM) cell. Different combinations of electric field intensity, exposure duration and modulation schemes were applied. Exposures at continuous wave (CW) signal at low intensity levels (3 V/m) did not induce any significant DNA damage, but a slight increase was observed for extreme stress levels (76.4 V/m). On the other hand, the results indicate that, at both, low and high electric field intensity UMTS (Universal Mobile Telecommunications System) signal could be statistically related to DNA damage invitro. Nevertheless, further experiments are required, increasing the statistical number of samples and recruiting more DNA damage endpoints before conclusive statements are drawn.
