Abstract: The effect of global system for mobile communication (GSM) radiofrequency fields on vascular permeability in the brain was studied using a purpose-designed exposure system at 898.4 MHz. Mice (n= 30) were given a single far field, whole body exposure for 60 minutes at a specific absorption rate of 4 W/kg. Control mice were also sham-exposed (n = 10) or permitted free movement in a cage (n = 10) to exclude any stress-related effects. Vascular permeability changes were detected using albumin immunohistochemistry and the efficacy of this vascular tracer was confirmed with a positive control group exposed to a clostridial toxin known to increase vascular permeability in the brain. No significant difference in albumin extravasation was detected between any of the groups at the light microscope level using the albumin marker.
