This study explored whether exposure to an FM continuous wave signal could alter the production of nitric oxide in mouse cells. Nitric oxide is a free radical that could play a role in cancer development.

The results show no differences in nitric oxide production between exposed and unexposed cells.

Subsequent findings confirmed the absence of effects of NO2 production, oxidative enzyme activity or glutathione levels from 825.62 MHz FM or 847.74 MHz CDMA exposure.
