Plasma medicine – can the direct application of Openair® plasma heal wounds?
medicine refers to the direct treatment of human cells with plasma.
For almost 15 years, the research group under Prof. Gary Friedman at
Drexel University (Philadelphia, PA) has pioneered work on the use of
atmospheric plasma systems to treat the skin. He was the first to
examine the impact of the most varied direct and indirect
applications of plasma to human skin. In the process, he discovered a
relationship between bacteria reduction through the application of
plasma (plasma disinfection) and wound healing.
this work is being pursued intensively at many research institutions
internationally. The Plasmamed research program (Greifswald
University), Düsseldorf University, Bochum University, and the Max
Planck Institute in Munich, all in Germany, deserve special mention
in this connection.
Plasmatreat has a wealth of experience in the area of disinfection of technical surfaces in medicine, known as plasma sterilisation. Openair® plasma jets are extremely effective in treating surfaces in continuous operation. Because of the potential-free nature of plasma energy, it is in principle suitable for the treatment of human skin as well.
verifications and further development of jet technology are required
to get to the point of using it in human medical applications. The
development of systems for controlled medical plasma treatments
presents tremendous opportunities for the future.
in intensive exchanges with universities and institutes with a view
to finding more partners to collaborate with in its exploration of
the exciting field of plasma medicine.
