Figure 2: Schematic representations of the proposed charge distribution pattern around H-bonded nano or micro clusters (a). Just before interaction, ordered representation of positive (+ve) and negative (−ve) charges around the H-bonded nano or micro clusters (b) and the corresponding disordered distribution around the diseased cell (c). As the diseased cell secretes more small-molecular-weight proteins, the disordered charge density is higher around diseased cell and more polar in character as a consequence, H-bonded nano or micro clusters are attracted towards the diseased cells. Due to the electrostatic interaction, the diseased cell charge distribution is rearranged due to H+ (proton) tunnelling
