Project summaryThe goal of the proposed Project is the conduct of extensive R&D on the effect of specifically modulated electromagnetic fields (EMF) of low frequency range (up to 300 Hz) with regard to development of tumors in laboratory animals. There will be considered tumors caused by chemical carcinogens; induced tumors growth and metastasing using the methods of experimental oncology, patho-morphology and cell biology. During the Project we are planning to choose the most efficient EMF parameters and develop advanced procedures of EMF exposure, as well as develop, manufacture and test a new in-lab programmable generator with controlled EMF parameters for the further medical applications. The R&D will address the entire organism response to EMF exposure in case of using such chemical carcinogens as dimethylhydrazine and urethane (products of intestine and lung tumors), as well as growth and metastasing in mice and rats of several transplanted tumor types (solid and ascites forms of cancer and lymphoma). The new data to be obtained and new generator designs will be rather efficient for prophylactics of carcinogenesis and development of additional tumor treatment methods, when curing resistive malignant cases that would improve cancer therapy in general.
The International Science and Technology Center (ISTC) is an intergovernmental organization connecting scientists from Kazakhstan, Armenia, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, and Georgia with their peers and research organizations in the EU, Japan, Republic of Korea, Norway and the United States.
ISTC facilitates international science projects and assists the global scientific and business community to source and engage with CIS and Georgian institutes that develop or possess an excellence of scientific know-how.
