The Effect of Strong Inhomogeneous Magnetic Fields on Serum-Free Cell Cultures
An investigation of the effect of strong magnetic fields on serum-free cell cultures of rabbit myocardium and of mouse lung fibroblast isolate was carried out. It was found that in each case there was a significant increase in the growth rate of cells when exposed continuously for two to seven days to a static magnetic field of 14,600 Oe, with a 5000-Oe/cm gradient.
