The Jacobson resonator, a device that supplies a continuous, low-level magnetic field, may be useful in the treatment of cancer as well as neurological and joint disorders. In a preliminary study conducted at Mississippi State University, application of an electromagnetic field in the picoTesla range inhibited the growth of human breast cancer cells in vitro by up to 35%. The device's manufacturer, Jacobson Resonance Enterprises of Boca Raton, Florida, said it is now developing protocols to evaluate the effect of magnetic fields in conjunction with chemotherapeutic agents. The Resonator is also being developed for treating osteoarthritis and epilepsy.
