Abstract : In this paper, we focus on the behaviour of periodic solutions to a cell- scale electropermeabilization model previously proposed by Kavian et al. (JMB,2012). Since clinical permeabilization protocols mostly submit cancer cells to trains of periodic pulses, we investigate on parameters that modify significantly the resulting permeabilization. Theoretical results of existence and uniqueness of periodic solutions are presented, for two different models of membrane electric conductivity. Numerical simulations were performed to corroborate these results and illustrate the asymptotic convergence to periodic solutions, as well as the dependency on biological parameters such as the cell size and the extracellular conductivity.
