Materials and methods
This study assessed the effect of chronic exposure to a 60 Hz circularly polarized magnetic field on the occurrence of ionizing radiation-induced lymphoma and other hematopoietic neoplasia in mice. Female C57BL/6 mice received lifetime exposure to either a magnetic field flux density of 1.42 mT for 18 h/day, or an ambient magnetic field of 0.13 µT. Beginning on the first day of magnetic field exposure, 1710 mice were treated with one of three levels of split-dose Cobalt-60 -radiation (cumulative 3.0, 4.0 or 5.1 Gy). The remaining 570 mice received sham irradiation treatment........
This study was supported by research contracts W02965-03, W02965-11, W02965-31, W02965-33 and W02965-34 with the Electric Power Research Institute, Palo Alto, CA, with co-funding from BC Hydro.
