This study follows earlier research in the same laboratory that found no evidence of DNA damage from 2450 MHs exposure of cells exposed in vitro. It explored whether 2450 MHz exposure could induce other types of DNA-related effects on protein-DNA crosslinks (PDCs) and/or DNA/DNA crosslinks (DDCs).

The researchers found no measurable effects of RF exposure on PDCs or DDCs in the exposed vs. unexposed cells
