The Effects Of Weak Static And Pulsed Magnetic Fields On Fibroblast And Fibrosarcoma Cells Under A Controlled Magnetic Environment, Julian Brandon Cyrus
Electrical, Computer & Energy Engineering Graduate Theses & Dissertations
This thesis provides evidence supporting the claim that weak static and pulsed magnetic fields have measureable effects upon fibrosarcoma cells. Fibroblast and fibrosarcoma cell lines were exposed to 0, 100, and 200μT fields, with a static 45μT field as the control. Each exposure intensity, other than 0μT, was conducted at a 20 sec pulse repetition rate, as well as the normal static conditions. The cells were tested for variations in oxidative stress, membrane potential, and cell viability. The fibrosarcoma cells were also tested for cell count. The trials were conducted using an electromagnetic system that provided a controlled magnetic environment ...
