Electromagnetic Field as a Treatment for Cerebral Ischemic Stroke

" In both clinical and pre-clinical studies, there is a wide variety of applied parameters. Extremely low-frequency EMF is the most used type of EMF. Both pulsed and sinusoidal waves are used in preclinical studies,but most articles applied PEMF, which also are the only type found in clinical research. In both cases, the combination of low-frequency magnetic fields and induction of microcurrents constitute a basic mechanism underlying its biological effects. The intensity of the treatment (energy of the signal) is greater in PEMF due to the amount of time that the signal is at its maximal level; however, the sinusoidal wave presents smooth periodic oscillation and different processes can be triggered with this type of wave." {Credits 1}

" Heterogeneity of the analyzed studies regarding, for example, the exposure duration, the magnetic field intensity, the biological endpoint, the cell type, and the time point of investigation is substantial and makes conclusions difficult todraw. Nevertheless, the neuroprotective potential of PEMF has been confirmed in various animal models of brain ischemia in rats, gerbils, and mice while ELF-MF has been proven in rats and mice." {Credits 1}
