Purpose: Electromagnetic fields have various effects on intracellular calcium levels, free oxygen radicals and various enzymes. The platelet activation pathway involves an increase in intracellular calcium levels and protein kinase C activation; and free oxygen radicals play a mediating role in this pathway. This study investigated whether 1 mT and 6 mT, 50 Hz magnetic fields had any effects on platelet aggregation.
