MARTINEZ MARTIN, Sara María; PEREZ DE ALEJO, José Luis; GARCIA SANCHEZ, Maura  and  JIMENEZ MARTINEZ, María del Carmen. Serum values of total proteins, albumin and uric acid in staff exposed to electromagnetic radiations. Rev Cub Med Mil [online]. 2010, vol.39, n.3-4, pp.192-1999. ISSN 0138-6557.

INTRODUCTION: The electricity and communications are features essential in the modern life; however, the electromagnetic radiations (non-ionizing radiations affect the health. Hence, it is very important to know the potential influence that on the oxidative status, the antioxidant ability and the hemochemical levels could exert the exposition to non-ionizing electromagnetic radiations. OBJECTIVE: To assess the behavior of uric acid, the albumin and the total proteins in subjects exposed to electromagnetic radiations. METHODS: A analytical, longitudinal and prospective cases-controls study was conducted in 125 male subjects aged between 20 and 29. Two study groups were created: the first one included n= 63 exposed subjects (using radio location equipments by radar) and the second one included subjects non-exposed to ionizing radiations, n = 62. To detect significant differences among groups T test was used for independent samples. The significance level was of p ? 0,05. RESULTS: Comparing both groups it was possible to observe significant differences as regards total proteins and albumin values; however, the uric acid levels remained without affection. CONCLUSIONS: The subjects exposed to non0ionizing electromagnetic radiations in the order of very high frequencies (SAF - 3 to 30 GHz) had a significant increase in the total proteins and albumin levels, which could to affect its ability of antioxidant defense.

Keywords : Total proteins; albumin; uric acid; antioxidant; non-ionizing radiations; free radicals; electromagnetic radiations.
