Drug Delivery System Using Nano-Magnetic Fluid
ABSTRACT Nano-size magnetic magnetide is considered important for various medical applications. Dynamic motion of the magnetic particle is investigated in two essential models from a theoretical point of view. One is a drag model of the magnetic particle in an artery. The second is a pull model towards the surface of artery. Threshold conditions of external variables are obtained by dimensional analysis. On the basis of all these results, it is concluded that the movement of magnetic fluids can be controlled by external magnetic fields in blood vessels.
