Effect of Electric Power Network Frequency Magnetic Field on Embryonic Development of Ascaris suum (Nematoda)
Abstract:Fertilised Ascaris suum eggs were subjected to an alternating electromagnetic field of frequency 50 Hz and density 2 mT for 60 days. The developing embryos in both control and experimental cultures were examined daily under a microscope. The experiment resulted in an accelerated rate of embryogenesis in the eggs incubated in the electromagnetic field, higher rates of malformed embryos as well as much higher mortality rate of L2 larvae.
