Abstract

Background: This study was investigating the effect of electromagnetic wave generated
by mobile and base transceiver station (900 MHz) on liver enzymes in both mature and
immature female age.
Materials and Methods: In this study, 20 rats Sprague Dawley white mature female age 8
to 9 weeks and weight 180 to 200 g and 20 rats immature age 3 to 4 weeks, weight 80 to
100 g, each age group were randomly divided in two groups (control and test). Test
groups, were daily for four hours and four different times exposed to electromagnetic
waves with signal generator (900 MHz), 5-meter intervals. Control groups were kept at
equal condition (themperature and light) in laboratory during experiment. After at the end
experimental period, blood was collected by heart puncture of all animal. Exposure to
EMF generated by BTS had significant effect on liver enzymes composition in mature and
immature rats.
Results: AST, ALT and ALP in immature-test groups decreased significantly compared
with their respective control groups (p<0.05). ALP in mature-test groups increased
significantly compared with their respective control groups (p<0.05).
Conclusion: These result suggest that exposure to EMF generated by BTS has a
deleterious effect on liver enzymes and that this effect is more sever in immature animals.
