ID Number 1098
Study Type Human / Provocation
Model 900 MHz (GSM) exposure to humans and analysis of hearing

Human volunteers exposed to 900 or 1800 MHz (GSM) and analysed for auditory effects. Initial protocols developed to detect small changes in auditory function and to be used on 100 - 500 volunteers in 6 different laboratories. Pilot studies measuring auditory evoked potentials in 30 volunteers have been performed to evaluate the study protocol. Studies in animals will also be performed.
