The new frontier in plasma medicine

18 marzo 2015

Applications of plasmas in medicine are a new frontier in therapeutic treatment. For example, they can help in stimulating tissue regeneration in the contexts of wound healing and dermatology. Essential to this topic is the understanding of processes at work in plasmas — a unique kind of gas-like state of matter containing charged particles. A new study provides previously unavailable data on oxygen ion transport and the likelihood of such ions interacting with water molecules.
