We shall assume, of course, that the objective of hyperthermia is to destroy the malignant cells. Destruction definitely needs energy. Description and quality assurance of hyperthermia use the Pennes heat equation to describe the processes. However the energy balance of the Pennes-equation does not contain the hyperthermic cell-destruction energy, which is(More)
Despite experimental evidence supporting ICR-like interactions in biological systems, to date there is no reasonable theoretical explanation for this phenomenon. The parametric resonance approach introduced by Lednev has enjoyed limited success in predicting the response as a function of the ratio of AC magnetic intensity to that of the DC field, explaining(More)
Comparison of thermal noise limits and the effects of low frequency electromagnetic fields (LFEMF) on the cellular membrane have important implications for the study of bioelectro-magnetism in this regime. Over a decade ago, Weaver and Astumian developed a model to show that thermal noise can limit the efficacy of LFEMF. A recent report by Kaune [Kaune(More)
All bio-systems are imperfect dielectrics. Their general properties however cannot be described by conventional simple electrodynamics; the system is more complex. A central question in our present paper is centered on a controversial debate of the possible effect of the zero fields (only potentials exist). We show that the identical use of the(More)
Living objects are complex systems with various harmonized chemical, thermodynamical, and quantum-mechanical processes in aqueous electrolyte environment. We had studied the effect of curl-free magnetic vector-potential on the matrix of the living matter, on the water. The discussed theoretical considerations are in harmony with the presented simple(More)
One remarkable part of the biological process is that it is self-similar stochastic, originating from a system of a large number of interacting parts. Our objective is to study the thermodynamics and the pink-noise behavior of these systems. Our model is based on the Langevin equation, describing the transport properties of biological systems. Using(More)
The effect of different concentrations of lead was investigated in two different ways in the leaves of Helianthus annuus plants. In the first way, removed leaf discs from 5-wceks old plants were floated in 0.05, 0.25, 2.50 and 5.00 mM PbNO3 solutions for 2, 4 and 6 days. In addition, the chlorophyll content and the activity of peroxidase enzyme which are(More)
