Abstract

In vivo exposure effects of electromagnetic fields (EMFs) on various tissues of experiment animals have been investigated. In this sense, modeling and formulation of these biological effects have been of significant importance. In this study extremely low frequency (ELF) EMFs effects on malondialdehyde (MDA) level and myeloperoxidase (MPO) activity in kidney of guinea pigs exposed to 50 Hz magnetic fields of 1 mT, 2 mT and 3 mT have been presented. It has been planned to determine whether genetic programming (GP) is appropriate to analyze and formulate these biological effects. Consequently, it has been observed that GP can be effectively used to model MDA level and MPO activity. The performances of prediction of the proposed GP formulation versus actual experimental values are found to be quite satisfactory in terms of standard deviation and correlation coefficient. It is concluded that the GP application serves to form a database for the researchers in this field, without exposing tissues to EMF and without using too many guinea pigs.
