Modeling The Effects of Electromagnetic Field on Plasmodium Falciparum
Theoretical and Computational Modeling of Electromagnetic Field
The study explores the potential effects of the remote application of cyclic magnetic field to the female anopheles mosquitoes that carry malaria parasites.
The goal is to develop a theoretical basis that can guide the cyclic activation of the magnetic field to induce the inactivity of the malaria parasite without killing the mosquitoes.
The model considers the hemozoin within the malaria parasite as a cluster of magnetic nanoparticels.
The potential effects of the applied magnetic field are then considered within a thermodynamic frame framework.
The induced heat generated is computed implicitly within a combined analytical and computation approach.
