This paper presents an analytical study of pulsatile flow of blood with micro-organisms through stenosed tubes in presence of transverse magnetic field.The effect of externally applied magnetic field on velocity, flow rate is studied.The analytical solutions for the velocity, volumetric flow rate are obtained using finite Hankel and Laplace transforms,and their natures are shown graphically for different values of involved parameters.
