Akbari A, Jelodar G, Nazifi S., Effect of radiofrequency waves and L-ascorbic acid on adrenal tissue glutathione, superoxide dismutase, catalase and malondialdehyde in male Sprague-Dawley rats, Onl J Vet Res., 27 (6): 372-377, 2023. Radio frequency waves (RFW) generated by base transceiver station may affect endocrine system function by oxidative stress. Three groups of 8 adult male Sprague-Dawley rats were treated daily for 45 days 200mg/kg vitamin C (1), exposed to 900MHz waves (2) or both (3). Controls were not treated or exposed (4). At day 46, rats were sacrificed for adrenal tissue glutathione (GSH), superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase (CAT) and malondialdehyde (MDA). Results suggested that exposure to RFW reduced SOD ~50% but Vitamin C boosted the enzyme ~45-50% even compared with controls. The vitamin prevented ~36% reductions in GSH and CAT in rats exposed to RFW. Vitamin C prevented increases in lipid peroxidation by ~46-50% boosted (P<0.05) SOD 50%, GSH 36%, CAT 37% but reduced (P<0.05) MDA 46%. Our findings suggest that RFW may induce oxidative stress in adrenal gland and that vitamin C may reduce this effect.
