  author={Rakhi Jha and Pradeep K. Jha and Sujoy K. Guha},
  booktitle={International journal of nanomedicine},
The rationale and technique underlying a novel concept of noninvasive fertility control by a new Cuproferrogel contraceptive drug, iron oxide-copper-styrene maleic anhydride-dimethyl sulphoxide (Fe3O4-Cu-SMA-DMSO) composite named 'Smart RISUG' (smart reversible inhibition of sperm under guidance) in presence of pulsed magnetic field (PMF; 1 mT to 800 mT) is explained. It was synthesized by dispersing iron oxide particles and copper particles into SMA-DMSO (male contraceptive RISUG) and… CONTINUE READING
