Preliminary Results of a Tumor Promotion Study with UMTS Exposure

The preliminary results of a new pilot study, conducted at ITEM, Hannover, and presented at the 17th FGF Workshop in Berlin last week, showed distinct tumor-promoting effects of chronic UMTS exposure (20 hours/day, 7 days/week, 24 months) beginning at the fetal stage in the offspring of ENU-treated mice. According to the authors these results will be difficult to interpret and assess since the majority of previous studies have focused on GSM-like exposures. The specificity of the applied exposure must be carefully analyzed before well targeted investigations are initiated to confirm these findings and to corroborate their relevance to human health.
