The objective of this paper is to carry out the effect of the MHD on the peristaltic transport of blood in a non-uniform channel have been explored under long wavelength approximation with low (zero) Reynolds number. Blood is made of an incompressible, viscous and electrically conducting. Explicit expressions for the axial velocity, axial pressure gradient are derived using long wavelength assumptions with slip and regularity conditions. It is determined that the pressure gradient diminishes as the couple stress parameter increments and it decreases as the magnetic parameter increments. We additionally concentrate the embedded parameters through graphs. © 2017 Published under licence by IOP Publishing Ltd.
