Immuno-Enhancing Effects of Longitudinal Electromagnetic Fields Generated from a Caduceus Coil

Glen Rein

Longitudinal vibrations in a variety of resonators (crystals, minerals, meta-materials, thin films, etc.) have been mathematically modeled in an attempt to understand the properties of the electromagnetic (EM) fields they emit. Such longitudinal (or scalar) fields can be experimentally generated by exciting longitudinal vibration modes or by the use of self-cancelling coils. The latter includes the use of toroidal and caduceus coils (which are geometrically related). These studies indicate that longitudinal fields can be considered non-classical, since they do not obey Maxwell’s laws. Recently Barrett has reformulated Maxwell’s equations [U(1) symmetry–based] to account for the observed anomalous behavior of transverse EM fields under special conditions. The modified equations, based on non-Abelian algebra, characterizes longitudinal EM fields of SU(2) symmetry.

Propagation of longitudinal fields is described in various biological systems (bone, cochlear tissue, etc.), where these fields have been postulated to mediate growth processes. Preliminary studies by Flannigan, Smith, and Ho suggested that biological systems also respond to longitudinal EM fields when applied exogenously. However, relatively little is known about their mechanism of action.

In this presentation, the biological effects were determined by measuring the growth of human lymphocytes in tissue culture. Growth was determined using state-of-the-art biochemical techniques involving the incorporation of (3H)-thymidine (1.0 μCi/ml) into replicating DNA. Cell proliferation was determined by measuring the amount of radioactivity in the DNA fraction 12 hours after four 15-minute treatments over a 12-hour treatment period. In some experiments, interleukin-2 (IL-2) (25U/ml), a standard mitogen for lymphocytes, was added to the culture medium immediately prior to the 12-hour EM treatment period. Control cultures received no EM treatments.

Longitudinal fields were generated using a specially designed caduceus coil predicted to emit a combination of transverse (classical) and longitudinal (non-classical) EM fields. The caduceus coil was fed with a complex square wave composed of frequencies expected to stimulate the immune system. Near-field transverse EM measurements were used to characterize the EM fields generated by this caduceus coil. A magnetometer was constructed using a Technics T-1050 high pass coil detector connected to a Spectral Dynamics SD-335 spectrum analyzer and a HP 181TR oscilloscope.

The results indicate that longitudinal EM fields generated from the caduceus coil have a very marked stimulatory effect on the growth of human lymphocytes (p = 0.001), much larger than previously reported for classical, transverse EM fields. A similar effect was observed with IL-2, but there was no additivity or synergism when the mitogen was combined with the EM fields. This suggests that these energetic and chemical signals stimulate cell proliferation by similar mechanisms. EM measurements indicated the presence of a weak (1.5 G) transverse EM field with the anomalous appearance of new frequencies not present in the current fed into the caduceus coil. It is presently unclear whether the unusually large stimulatory effect on lymphocyte proliferation is due to an optimal combination of transverse and longitudinal EM fields or a highly effective set of frequencies generated by the fields emitted from the caduceus coil.
